Atlas of EEG Patterns, Second Edition
The electroencephalogram (EEG) is essential to the accurate diagnosis of many neurologic disorders. The Second Edition of Atlas of EEG Patterns sharpens readers’ interpretation skills with an even larger array of both normal and abnormal EEG pattern figures and text designed to optimize recognition of telltale findings. Trainees will benefit from hundreds of EEG figures, helping them spot abnormalities and identify the pattern name. Experienced neurologists will find the book excellent as a quick reference and when trying to distinguish a finding from similarly appearing patterns.
Organized by EEG pattern, the Atlas orients you to the basics of EEG, helps the reader identify the characteristic EEG wave features and leads you to the EEG diagnosis through a table that organizes all of the EEG patterns according to their wave features. The Atlas includes the full range of EEG patterns from the common rhythms to the rare findings, and it also includes numerous examples of artifacts.

Blume's Atlas of Pediatric and Adult EEGs combines Dr. Blume's two classic books, the Atlas of Adult EEG and the Atlas of Pediatric EEG, into a single resource for adult and pediatric epileptologists, neurologists, and neurology trainees. This new, consolidated atlas features substantially more digitally obtained illustrations, offers hundreds of new recordings that demonstrate seizure states, normal phenomena, and artifacts, and expands on ICU bedside monitoring with the four-channel abbreviated recording typically used in the intensive care setting. The authors provide examples of typical waveforms and the expected variances.
A companion website offers the fully searchable text and hundreds of additional EEG recordings with captions. Users can test their knowledge with the caption "off," then click to confirm the correct answer.

Thoroughly updated for its Third Edition, this text will be the definitive reference on autonomic nervous system disorders, for practicing and academic neurologists and clinicians in such areas as cardiology and gastroenterology where autonomic disorders are prevalent. The book focuses on patient care and provides the sophisticated laboratory testing information necessary for clinical diagnosis and management.
This edition has a new co-editor, Eduardo E. Benarroch, MD, who provides more detailed information on the role of the central nervous system in autonomic disorders. The book incorporates the latest advances in noninvasive laboratory testing to evaluate abnormalities in the control of blood pressure, heart rate, urination, digestion, sexual function, and sweating.
From the Classroom to the Exam RoomJeffrey W. ClarkRead More
This book takes a novel approach to fundamental neurology that bridges the gap between the classroom and the patient encounter: it teaches students and residents how to arrive at a presumptive diagnosis in an efficient manner. Beginning with the initial approach to the neurologic patient, the book directs the reader in getting relevant information from the history and neurologic examination. A NeurAxis chart and a What Could the Problem Be? chapter help the reader make sense of the history and examination findings and quickly consider the diagnostic possibilities. Case studies encourage readers to apply this approach to real patients.

Alberto J. Espay, José BillerRead MoreConcise Neurology presents neurology content in a logical sequence within each of ten chapters. Virtually every topic of interest to clinicians is covered in one or two pages to facilitate efficient review of the core concepts in diagnosis and treatment for each syndrome or disease. The authors have maintained a thematic unity across related pages, which allows for random reading to be almost as fruitful as sequential reading. For example, a reader who opens the "anticoagulation" page will find a capsulized review of the heparin, warfarin, and thrombolysis stroke trials and the evidence supporting the current therapeutic guidelines. Flipping through neighboring pages will rapidly refresh the position of the clinically relevant thrombophilias in relation to the coagulation pathway, indications for lifelong anticoagulation, causes of hyperhomocysteinemia, and the bare bones of the most important etiologies of strokes in the young.The book presents higher level content than the student "In a Page" text, covers each topic in more depth, and addresses issues related to pathophysiology and neuropathology of diseases. Concise Neurology will be a welcome resource for busy practitioners, residents, fellows, medical students, and allied health care professionals in the neurosciences who require a rapid, readable overview of a complex subject.
