    Book details

Neurology for the Hospitalist is a concise and eminently practical resource for inpatient neurological care. Internal Medicine Hospitalists frequently face patients with neurological issues and many feel that their training was insufficient in this area. Hospitalists are often the primary inpatient care providers for this patient population as many perceive Neurology to be an Internal Medicine subspecialty. Both new and experienced hospitalists will benefit from this handbook. In addition, medical students and residents will find this to be an excellent at the bedside resource.

The format of the handbook allows one to quickly learn the differential diagnosis, appropriate testing, signs to watch for, and treatment strategies for the most frequently encountered neurologic conditions. Each topic covers commonly asked questions and elements that warrant close attention. For the hospitalist in particular, proposed quality metrics are given for major neurological diagnoses. No other book provides the hospitalist caring for patients with neurological issues the essential elements of that care in such a useable way. The focus is on practical information that will guide the best care.

    Many typos throughout the book. It makes you question the accuracy of much of the information. At one point it refers you to a chapter that isn't even included in the book. Cranial nerve exam is incorrect or typos. Has the potential to be a great book, but I am disappointed. The mistakes and typos need to be corrected.

    in depth and well written with lots of practice advice for the neuro hospitalist. I've got a large bookshelf in my office but this is one of the books that I reference the most during the night.
