While there are several comprehensive textbooks on movement disorders, all are lengthy, thick, hardbound books and thus are less useful for the busy, practicing clinician who often needs a quick guide on the diagnostic approach and therapy for various movement disorders. There are a few practical, therapeutic handbooks on Parkinson disease but there are none for other types of movement disorders (chorea, dystonia, myoclonus, ataxia, etc). The ever busy clinician will also benefit from a “primer” on
In this comprehensive and clinically directed reference for the diagnosis and treatment of persons with spinal cord injury (

As incredible it is to us to consider how far the ketogenic diet has come in 100 years, it is equally amazing to realize that this Ketogenic Diets book is now in its seventh edition, 25 years after its first publication by Demos Health. This edition continues the recent tradition of updating us every five years on what’s new and noteworthy in the use of ketogenic diets, and the authors appreciate many comments from parents and patients that this book has become a “gold standard” guide. The author’s intention is to continue to make this book helpful for everyone on the ketogenic journey: parents, patients, caregivers for sure, but also physicians, dietitians, scientists, nurses, and social workers. They consider it a success if it helped make ketogenic diet therapies more approachable and effective for you, your family, and/or your ketogenic diet center. Now, with over 10 years of experience, this seventh edition includes all-new material and guidance for adults starting dietary therapies, including information from a recent international expert guideline publication. For children, the 2009 pediatric ketogenic diet consensus statement was recently revised in 2018; details and changes from this important paper will be seen throughout this book. New chapters include exogenous ketones, a fifth ketogenic diet entitled the “modified ketogenic diet”, intermittent fasting, the influence of ketogenic diets on the gut microbiome, and expanded use for infants. Much of the final editing of this edition occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the authors included information learned about how to manage ketogenic diet therapies in a crisis/pandemic situation. Finally, as ketogenic diets continue to be used by more countries every year, this book highlights some of the international recipes, cultures, and even scientific initiatives of this worldwide expansion.
This book provides us with what we need to sleep well. It provides the tools and techniques to reverse insomnia and improve sleep long-term. Insomnia, persistent trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep, affects our daytime functioning and wellbeing. The book breaks down the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (

This book is a study guide/self-evaluation tool to prepare for the ABPN exam and MOC exam in vascular neurology. It is representative of the areas tested on the exam, including the standard clinical and basic science of stroke and some of the esoterica that appear on the exam. The book serves as a study guide for any neurologist, internist, or family practitioner interested in expanding his or her knowledge in this important field. The practice exam question-and-answer format is an effective and engaging study method, as opposed to a didactic review or summary reader. It is useful also to identify areas of weakness that require further study. The book has over 600 questions divided across fifteen sections. The fifteen sections are as follows: Basic Science; Vascular and Brain Anatomy; Clinical Pathology; Pharmacology and Pharmacokinetics; Epidemiology, Genetics, Primary Prevention; Ischemic Disease of the Brain and Spinal Cord; Hemorrhagic Disease of the Brain and Spinal Cord; Neuro-Ophthalmology; Cardiovascular Disease; Hematology; Pediatric Cerebrovascular Disease; Neurovascular Imaging; Clinical Trials and Ethics; Recovery and Rehabilitation; and Case Studies in Cerebrovascular Disease. The questions include cytotoxic edema following cerebral ischemia, internal carotid artery; cavernous malformations; thiazide diuretics; fibromuscular dysplasia; transient global amnesia; spinal epidural hematomas; ischemic optic neuropathy; atrial fibrillation; Von Willebrand disease; Perinatal ischemic stroke; cerebral microbleeds; modified Rankin scale; botulinum toxin and so on. Explanatory answers with appropriate references are included to facilitate learning. Most of the references are relatively recent, but for certain topics, the classic references, such as Niels Lassen’s work on incomplete cerebral ischemia and Anthony Furlan’s classic description of retinal ischemia presenting as visual change in bright light have been included.
Continuous EEG monitoring is an important tool for assessing brain functions and allows clinicians to identify malignant EEG patterns quickly and provide more effective care. This book presents the wide range of technical and clinical issues encountered in successful critical care EEG. It focuses on the challenges of EEG interpretation that are unique to EEG monitoring in the ICU. The book is organized into five parts containing forty chapters. The first part describes technical issues such as EEG acquisition equipment, electrodes and montages, networking, remote monitoring and data storage, and staffing an ICU monitoring unit. The second part presents various indications for continuous EEG monitoring such as status epilepticus, ischemic stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage, intracranial hemorrhage, infectious and inflammatory conditions, traumatic brain injury, and cardiac arrest. The third part focuses on EEG Interpretation and presents an overview of standardized critical care EEG terminology. Part four describes treatment of generalized convulsive status epilepticus, non-convulsive status epilepticus in adults, and status epilepticus in the pediatric population. It also discusses alternative treatments for refractory status epilepticus, and prophylaxis of seizures in the ICU population. The final part presents neonatal ICU EEG guidelines, American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ACNS) consensus statement for pediatrics and adults, billing and coding for ICU EEG monitoring, report generation and communication with the ICU team, multimodality monitoring, and future directions for EEG monitoring in the ICU.
