Book Description :

Simulation in Acute Neurology is a reference on the execution of a simulation-based educational program in the management of acute neurologic emergencies. Simulation in Acute Neurology has practical value because it contains detailed descriptions of our simulation scenarios. The foundation of this book is our experience with neurosimulation―and it has been a very good one Part I provides an overview of the principles of simulation in medicine and examines the many unique opportunities simulation provides as an educational tool. Barriers to simulating neurologic emergencies are also discussed. Simulation allows a physician-in-training to be observed directly as he or she evaluates and manages acute neurologic disease. Part II is the core of the book. Fifteen acute neurologic emergencies, including complex neuroethical quandaries, are presented in detail, step by step, decision by decision, error after error. Each chapter in this section starts with an explanation of the essence of the discussed neuroemergency (THE PROBLEM BEFORE US), followed by a description of the scenario itself (THE PRESENTING CLINICAL PROBLEM), how scenarios can be adjusted to different types of learners (ADAPTING THE SCENARIO), and ends with a discussion of topics for feedback, which are generally focused around errors and pitfalls (DEBRIEFING). To show the flow of scenarios, we created two additional main headings: (THE IDEAL LEARNER) and (THE NOT-SO IDEAL LEARNER).

Book Description :

This article analyzes the current available literature on high-fidelity simulation as an educational tool in teaching acute neurology and neurocritical care skills to trainees. Twenty-five studies were found to be published in peer-reviewed journals. While every study had a common target of educating learners on appropriate acute neurology evaluation, diagnosis, and management, there exists significant heterogeneity in the chosen topics, implemented procedures, and assessments of learner outcomes. Overall findings suggest that there is considerably significant evidence for the effectiveness and utility of simulation-based education when it comes to the teaching of acute and critical neurological emergencies to trainees and even practicing providers. Existing literature is summarized, current trends are discussed, and recommendations for areas of future research are included

Book Description :

Caring for a loved one in a coma is a distressing time, full of many questions, and often, not as many answers. Guide to a Comatose Patient is a first-of-its-kind book that steps into the shoes of the neurologist, to show the perspective of the staff caring for their loved ones — what worries us, how we think and intervene, what we can and cannot predict, and what we know as a certainty. In our hospital ICUs, there are more than a dozen comatose patients at any given point of time. Causes of coma can range from drug-induced coma—in which medications are used to calm the patient and allow the ventilator to work properly—to coma due to intoxication and coma related to a brain injury. No matter the reason, it can be a distressing time for loved ones. Guide to a Comatose Patient is a helpful guide for any family member or loved one confronted with coma. Author Eelco F. M. Wijdicks, M.D., Ph.D., a leading neurologist and attending neurointensivist at Mayo Clinic, begins each chapter by sharing helpful anecdotes from a career spanning four decades, before diving into the answers to commonly asked questions, such as: · What are the causes of coma? · When will the patient wake up and recover? · When is no recovery expected? · When should we consider organ donation? · What are the rates of survival? While there are many books on families’ experiences with acute traumatic brain injury and coma, Dr. Wijdicks offers an unusually candid conversation that allows a peek inside the minds of the doctors caring for your loved one. Having had many experiences talking to families having to make difficult decisions at a very difficult time, Dr. Wijdicks’s message is hopeful while remaining grounded in reality—a reality in which facts must dictate actions. Guide to a Comatose Patient provides important information so that families better understand treatment options, but most importantly, the book offers an open dialogue and optimal transparency to help provide hope and healing through times of grief.

Book Description :

Objective:Medical education innovation with stroke code simulation sustainably prepares neurology residents for participation in the actual stroke code process. Background: Didactic lectures on acute stroke do not prepare neurology residents for nuances of leading a stroke code in high stress environments, multidisciplinary team member interactions, and correct order entry. Simulation technology is increasingly available for resident education, but underutilized in neurology. Design/Methods: A goal-based stroke code curriculum was implemented through 4 scenarios enacted by a standardized patient, nurse, CT technician, stroke fellow, and junior neurology resident at the institution's simulation center. Residents alternated leading or observing simulated codes, followed by group debriefing sessions to review learning goals. Immediate effect of simulation was measured with a pre- and post- multiple-choice quiz and thematic coding of open-ended resident written feedback. Long-term impact of simulation was surveyed with a 5-point Likert scale at 1 year and free text comment box. Results: Between July 2016 and July 2017, 22 junior adult and pediatric neurology residents completed stroke code simulation. Quiz grades improved from 67.5% to 78.3% after simulation. Common feedback themes reference comfort with code logistics, imaging order entry, team member roles, benefit of realistic scenarios, and desire for more scenarios. The residents perceived simulation would relieve the stress of stroke call. At 1 year, all residents continued to feel comfortable with codes including tPA criteria and orders and NIHSS exam. 100% agreed simulation had sufficiently prepared them for stroke call. 83% agreed scenarios reflected their real-life experience. One resident commented stroke simulation was better than any didactic teaching for call preparedness.Conclusions:Medical education innovation with stroke code simulation improves junior neurology resident comprehension of the acute stroke code process and has sustained benefit on preparedness for stroke call at 1 year. Simulation is a valuable tool for neurology resident education.

Book Description :

Critical Care Neurology, Part I: Neurocritical Care focuses on the care specialists and general neurologists that consult in the ICU and their work with patients in acute, life-threatening situations who are dealing with neurologic or neurosurgical crises emanating from either a preexisting neurologic syndrome or from a new neurologic complication appearing as a result of another medical or surgical critical illness. These two separate clinical situations form the pillars of neurocritical care, hence these practices are addressed via two separate, but closely related, HCN volumes. Chapters in both focus on pathophysiology and management, and are tailored for both general neurologists and active neurocritical specialists, with a specific focus on management over diagnostics. Part I addresses the principles of neurocritical care and the management of various neurologic diseases. Part II addresses the interplay between neurologic complications and the surgical, medical, cardiac, and trauma of critical illnesses that most typically present in the ICU. Provides an essential neurocritical care overview for general neurologists Presents neurocritical care specialists with an update on severe neurological illness management Offers coverage of all the most frequent neurologic diseases requiring intensive care Includes chapters authored by global leaders in the field, providing the broadest, most expert coverage available on the topics discussed

Book Description :

While conventional magnetic resonance, X-ray-based, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine techniques are widely used to facilitate diagnosis, inform therapeutic decision-making, provide information regarding prognosis, and monitor therapeutic response in neurologic diseases, their practical value in acute clinical care is not as yet well-defined and the potential future development is not fully appreciated. This book provides a comprehensive survey of best practice for specialists and trainees in neurology, emergency medicine, neuroradiology, radiology, neurosurgery, and critical care. The symptom-based approach guides the choice of the available imaging tools for efficient, accurate, and cost-effective diagnosis to support immediate management of common and complex neurological disorders in the acute setting. Effective examination algorithms are included that integrate neurological and imaging concepts with the practical demands and constraints of emergency care. Written by leading international authorities, the book is extensively illustrated and contains many helpful case-histories.

Book Description :

The focus of this publication on Neuro-Otology in Neurologic Clinics is on the patient presenting for urgent or emergent care with a chief complaint of new, previously-undiagnosed dizziness or vertigo. Intent is to emphasize throughout the issue five primary components of initial diagnosis and management: (1) Epidemiology, differential diagnosis, and disease definitions; (2) Bedside clinical features that differentiate dangerous from benign causes; (3) Appropriate use of advanced diagnostic tests (including imaging, vestibular tests) and consultations; (4) Application of early treatments (manipulative, pharmacologic, rehabilitative); and (5) Acute disposition strategies, including determining need for admission and urgency of follow-up. Articles have a consistent architecture to highlight key points: 1) Case Scenario (with a representative case example; videos are presented with many of these); 2) Prevalence & Pathomechanisms; 3) Definitions & Diagnostic Criteria; 4) Bedside & Laboratory Diagnostic Tests; 5) Acute Treatment Options (including manipulative, pharmacologic, rehabilitative); and 6) Triage & Disposition (including referrals and follow-up). The articles are presented with four major parts: Overall approach to acute dizziness and vertigo; Episodic vertigo and dizziness; Acute, continuous vertigo and dizziness; and Case unknowns. Among the topics covered are: Bedside evaluation; Transient ischemic attacks; Vestibularl neuritis and labyrinthitis; Stroke; Novel approach to diagnosing the acutely dizzy patient. David Newman-Toker leads this publication with associate editors renown in their fields - Kevin Kerber, William J. Meurer, Rodney Omron, and Jonathan Edlow.

Book Description :

While the management of critically ill patients has traditionally been an undeveloped area of medicine, recent advances in drugs, surgical techniques, and medical equipment now allow patients to survive illnesses and disorders that previously were uniformly fatal. Unfortunately, the knowledge and techniques that are required to do this are not traditionally taught in medical school. Thus, medical errors in this population group are not uncommon and are more likely to have adverse, often fatal, consequences. In 2001, physicians responsible for the care of the critically ill were introduced to a new program providing them with the tools to significantly decrease the number and severity of medical errors: the Acute Critical Events Simulation (ACES) Program, an intensive and highly interactive course on the acute resuscitation of critically ill patients and the management of crisis situations. This book is a compendium to the ACES Program, containing its important background information and reference material while serving as an independent reference source for physicians and other health care professionals. With contributions by recognized physicians from across Canada, it presents the specifics of acute resuscitation in the context of crisis resource management and teaches readers life-saving resuscitation skills in a way that allows them to use their medical training more effectively. With increasing doctor shortages forcing more physicians to manage acutely ill patients, this book will aid physicians looking for a simple yet useful text to help them manage critically ill patients in connection with the ACES Program. While the intended audience for the course is primarily emergency room doctors, family physicians, and senior medical residents, this collection is also applicable to nurses, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and medical students.

Book Description :

Practising fundamental patient care skills and techniques is essential to the development of trainees' wider competencies in all medical specialties. After the success of simulation learning techniques used in other industries, such as aviation, this approach has been adopted into medical education. This book assists novice and experienced teachers in each of these fields to develop a teaching framework that incorporates simulation. The Manual of Simulation in Healthcare, Second Edition is fully revised and updated. New material includes a greater emphasis on patient safety, interprofessional education, and a more descriptive illustration of simulation in the areas of education, acute care medicine, and aviation. Divided into three sections, it ranges from the logistics of establishing a simulation and skills centre and the inherent problems with funding, equipment, staffing, and course development to the considerations for healthcare-centred simulation within medical education and the steps required to develop courses that comply with 'best practice' in medical education. Providing an in-depth understanding of how medical educators can best incorporate simulation teaching methodologies into their curricula, this book is an invaluable resource to teachers across all medical specialties.
