Abstract

This title in the Core Principles of Acute Neurology series focuses on how certain neurologic conditions can inflict damage to other organ systems and what systemic complications most frequently jeopardize patients with primary neurological disorders. Providing Acute Care carefully summarizes the necessary orders and treatment plan and initial management of expected complications. Each system is discussed in a separate chapter and the crucial initial decisions are presented in an easy to read narrative. It provides a ready to use template and basic knowledge in patients sick enough to require close attention, but who do not need to be in an intensive care unit.
