Instant Neurological Diagnosis quickly became a must-have for the practicing neurologist looking to acquire the expertise to make rapid diagnoses. This best-selling guide became an indispensable source of diagnostic clues, starting from a patient’s appearance all the way down to a directed clinical examination. In this completely revised and updated resource.
These powerful diagnostic short cuts – identified as “Handles” and “Flags” – must be used with caution. Armed with the potential to save you hours of valuable time, they may even demonstrate your superior clinical acumen above colleagues. Some might permit a rapid diagnosis, while others warn a clinician to reconsider and think of an alternative solution.
“This new book by Swift and Sethi, the inventors of Neuro-Bowl and their collaborator, Hawkes, reveals some of the heuristics that have been elaborated by generations of clinical neurologists and inherited by the best diagnosticians of the modern era. The book is fun and reflects some of the best (and worst) heuristics that have been elaborated by our neurological ancestors.” –Martin A. Samuels, MD, FAAN, MACP, FACP, DSci (hon); Chair, Department of Neurology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital; Miriam Sydney Joseph Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School
