The Four Minute Neurologic Exam

"NEURO WNL" ("the neurological exam is within normal limits") is commonly the last notation on a physical exam report. Regretfully, this often means that virtually no neuro exam took place. The patient looked O.K. to all superficial appearances and had no particular neurologic complaints. A physician can be trapped into this approach, when there is inadequate time for the 90 minute neurologic exam some references suggest, or even the 20 minute exam suggested for patients with no neurologic complaints. In reality, there are times when 5 minutes or less is available. This book, written for the non-neurologist, focuses on a brief neurologic screening exam that maximizes the useful information obtainable when time is limited. It is not a substitute for the more formal neurologic evaluation that should follow, perhaps by a neurologist, when the screening exam reveals significant findings. A glossary has been included for words not defined in the text. Chapter 1 has been modified from an article by the author in the April 1981 issue of American Family Physician, and contains illustrations by Peter Y. Stone.

Highly Commended (Neurology category), BMA Awards 2005. Neurological clinical examinations are one of the most intimidating procedures a medical student has to perform. This book sets out to demystify it, and, as is shown by the spectacular success of the previous editions, succeeds admirably. It offers a concise and highly illustrated guide to the clinical examination of the nervous system for medical students and junior doctors. History taking sections are expanded because students often have more problems with this area than anything else. Comments on the evidence base for examination (and the need for more of it) are included. A section at end of book on the neurological examination in an exam setting provides sample cases and how to approach them.

The central nervous system comprises the brain and spinal cord. Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. It deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of conditions and diseases involving the central and peripheral nervous system. The evaluation of a patient with neurological disorder involves history taking and the neurological examination: clinical evaluation. The information obtained from the clinical evaluation is important to determine where the problem exists in the nervous system: the key process in developing the differential diagnosis. This process however is considered difficult because of the sheer complexity of the nervous system and hence dreaded by medical students all over the world. Clinical Neurology Made Easy is a book on history taking and examination in Neurology. It outlines the logical order of evaluating a patient with a neurological disorder. The first part of the book details the history taking in neurology noting the significance of the symptoms. The second part continues with the neurological examination dedicating a chapter to each aspect of the nervous system for clearer and easier assimilation. Certain examinations which are no longer popular are also described as they still give important information regarding the diagnosis. The challenge of evaluating the unconscious patient necessitates the dedication of a chapter to the unconscious patient in this book. In addition, there has been an overreliance in investigations in recent times to make a diagnosis irrespective of the fact that a great percentage of diagnosis in neurology can be made by good clinical acumen. Clinical Neurology Made Easy is therefore a reminder of the importance of a detailed methodical clinical evaluation. It also gives assurance to doctors and neurologists in poor resource settings that the diagnosis of neurological disorders is not impossible but rather, it is within reach with good clinical evaluation.
