The Code Stroke Handbook Book Review:

A 65-year-old patient arrives at the Emergency Department with stroke symptoms that began 45 minutes ago. You are called STAT! Acute stroke management has changed dramatically in recent years. Tremendous advances have been made in acute treatments, diagnostic neuroimaging, and organized systems of care, and are enabling better outcomes for patients. Stroke has evolved from a largely untreatable condition in the acute phase to a true medical emergency that is potentially treatable—and sometimes curable. The Code Stroke emergency response refers to a coordinated team-based approach to stroke patient care that requires rapid and accurate assessment, diagnosis, and treatment in an effort to save the brain and minimize permanent damage. The Code Stroke Handbook contains the "essentials" of acute stroke to help clinicians provide best practice patient care. Designed to assist frontline physicians, nurses, paramedics, and medical learners at different levels of training, this book highlights clinical pearls and pitfalls, guideline recommendations, and other high-yield information not readily available in standard textbooks. It is filled with practical tips to prepare you for the next stroke emergency and reduce the anxiety you may feel when the Code Stroke pager rings. An easy-to-read, practical, clinical resource spread over 12 chapters covering the basics of code stroke consultations: history-taking, stroke mimics, neurological examination, acute stroke imaging (non-contrast CT/CT angiography/CT perfusion), and treatment (thrombolysis and endovascular therapy) Includes clinical pearls and pitfalls, neuroanatomy diagrams, and stroke syndromes, presented in an easily digestible format and book size that is convenient to carry around for quick reference when on-call at the hospital Provides foundational knowledge for medical students and residents before starting your neurology, emergency medicine, or internal medicine rotations

The Stroke Clinician s Handbook Book Review:

There are numerous elaborate and comprehensive textbooks and guidelines on stroke. However, busy clinicians are constantly bombarded with new knowledge for an infinite number of medical conditions. It becomes a challenge for them to tease out the important information that will help guide them through the care of the patient they have right before them. This handbook was thus conceptualized with both the busy clinician and the stroke patient needing urgent treatment in mind. By providing only essential information in a standard and user-friendly layout, it assists clinicians in making real-time decisions quickly and effectively with actual step-by-step guides on specific issues relevant to the care of stroke patients. The use of this practical handbook is instinctive with the topics arranged in chronological order, simulating the actual clinical scenario from a prehospital setting, consultation in the emergency room, admission to the hospital, to secondary prevention in the clinic. With contributions from over 30 stroke experts in Southeast Asia, this handbook is widely applicable in different medical settings and will certainly appeal to stroke specialists, general practitioners, nurses, paramedics, and medical students alike.

Stroke Medicine Book Review:

Stroke is an enormous health problem. It is the third major cause of death, and the major cause of adult neurological disability. As many as a quarter of women in their 80s may suffer stroke. It represents a huge financial burden for the NHS, costing more than heart disease. Stroke care has historically been poor in many places but a revolution in care is taking place as a result of specific treatments such as stroke units and thrombolysis, which have been shown to markedly improve outcome. This has led to many countries reorganising the way they offer stroke care. Stroke Medicine is a practical handbook for the practising physician. Written by a multidisciplinary team of three practising consultants from a leading UK stroke service, it provides an up-to-date and easily accessible source of information on all aspects of stroke care from acute care, through to rehabilitation and secondary prevention. Designed to be used both on the ward and in the outpatient room, it provides a practical approach to managing the stroke patient, and is an invaluable source of information for stroke physicians, neurologists, geriatricians and other specialists involved in the care of stroke patients. It will also prove to be a useful handbook for consultants and doctors in training. Designed to cover the curriculum of the UK Specialist Stroke training programme for clinicians in training, it is likely to provide similar levels of coverage for emerging stroke training programmes inother parts of the world.

The Handbook of Adult Language Disorders Book Review:

The Handbook of Adult Language Disorders is the essential guide to the scientific and clinical tenets of aphasia study and treatment. It focuses on how language breaks down after focal brain damage, what patterns of impairment reveal about normal language, and how recovery can be optimally facilitated. It is unique in that it reviews studies from the major disciplines in which aphasia research is conducted—cognitive neuropsychology, linguistics, neurology, neuroimaging, and speech-language pathology—as they apply to each topic of language. For each language domain, there are chapters devoted to theory and models of the language task, the neural basis of the language task (focusing on recent neuroimaging studies) and clinical diagnosis and treatment of impairments in that domain. In addition, there is broad coverage of approaches to investigation and treatment from leading experts, with several authors specializing in two or more disciplines. This second edition focuses on characterizing the cognitive and neural processes that account for each variant of aphasia as a first step toward developing effective rehabilitation, given that aphasia is one of the most common and disabling consequences of stroke. The best and most authoritative handbook in the field, The Handbook of Adult Language Disorders is the definitive reference for clinicians and researchers working in the scientific investigation of aphasia.
