Anesthesiologists may encounter patients with a wide variety of acute neurologic events in the perioperative period at various stages in their workup, diagnosis, and treatment. The urgency of diagnosis, workup, and definitive treatment falls on a spectrum from minutes to days to weeks depending on the clinical scenario. This section deals primarily with the emergent and urgent acute neurologic events where time to treatment is paramount to a good neurological outcome. A thorough understanding of the pathophysiology, assessment, and treatment of these neurologic conditions is essential for all anesthesia professionals in order to ensure optimal care delivery and outcomes for patients.
