Description : Today’s APN and PA programs have been allocating less time to the study of neurology, leaving new practitioners with an uncertain grasp of how to approach the neurology patient. Here is a “how to” manual for knowledgably conducting the basic neurological examination and confidently applying exam findings to the interpretation of common neurologic symptoms. It explains all facets of the standard neuro exam that is conducted in a clinic or hospital setting including useful algorithms. The book then focuses on using the exam results to determine a likely diagnosis and/or area of concern for further diagnostic tests. The text presents both basic and advanced concepts related to the exam to foster a deeper understanding of the meaning and physiology underlying an abnormal finding.
