About this book

This book functions as a practical reference for recognizing various patient presentations, signs, and symptoms that must be considered when treating  neuromuscular disorders (NMD). It emphasizes the importance of recognizing these preexisting conditions as this can be crucial to treating patients properly with appropriate medications and procedures.

Concise yet comprehensive, this 10-chapter guide analyses various neuromuscular weaknesses including respiratory and progressive muscle weakness. Chapters address the involvement of multiple organ systems in NMD, with specific attention to cardiomyopathy, cardiac arrhythmias, and dystrophinopathies. Discussions also address the challenges practitioners face when treating vulnerable demographics such as pregnant women and those with hyper metabolic conditions.

 

Written by experts in the field, Neuromuscular Urgencies and Emergencies is an invaluable resource for neurologists, emergency medicine physicians, physician assistants, and the interventional neurologist. ​
