Abstract

Identifying Neuroemergencies provides practical information on how to best manage and triage patients in the first hour of admission in the Emergency Department. Physicians consider a neurologic emergency when the patient has clearly worsened and their neurologic signs have changed. Correct decisions are imperative: any type of neurocritical illness demands immediate treatment in the emergency department.
