European Handbook of Neurological Management Excerpt :
The European Handbook of Neurological Management, published in collaboration with the European Federation of Neurological Societies (EFNS), is a unique book that brings together peer-reviewed guidelines for the treatment and management of neurological disease. For the first time, neurologists can find advice on management aspects of most neurological disorders that is either evidence-based or, where the evidence is inadequate, the consensus guidance of an international European panel of experts. The guidelines fall naturally into sections that cover: Investigation: cerebrospinal fluid analysis, imaging, diagnostic antibodies and skin biopsy Major neurological diseases: stroke, migraine, Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, mild traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease Neuromuscular diseases: motor neuron disease, inflammatory neuropathy, muscular dystrophy and myasthenia gravis Infections: HIV infection and encephalitis Neurological problems: treatment of neuropathic pain, acute relapses of multiple sclerosis and status epilepticus, to name but a few Sleep disorders: Narcolepsy, other sleep disorders and restless legs syndrome Cognitive rehabilitation. The European Handbook of Neurological Management is a book that any neurologist, without regard to national boundaries, will find a useful aid in the day-to-day management of neurological disease.
