Neurological Clinical Examination 3rd Edition PDF
Time is short and the neurological examination can be long. To make the best use of your time, you need to be able to tailor the examination to the problem in hand. That is what distinguishes the neurological examination from those involving the cardiovascular, respiratory or gastro-intestinal systems where the same general system of examination suffices in most cases. This book outlines an approach to seeking the key clinical signs relevant to those problems uncovered in the course of taking the history. This approach is based on the most likely diagnoses as well as neuro-anatomical considerations.
In its first two editions, the book was aimed primarily at candidates sitting for clinical examinations (in its other sense). It has now been broadened to provide guidance for anyone seeking to improve their skills in the neurological examination. Chapters on assessment of the comatose patient and on psychogenic disorders have been added. These changes have been made in collaboration with my distinguished colleague, Joseph Jankovic, of Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas, who is known throughout the world as a master clinician, particularly in the field of movement disorders.
