Dementia is a devastating diagnosis for patients

Dementia comes in many forms that can be hard to differentiate. Arriving at an accurate diagnosis without subjecting an already wary patient to unnecessary tests requires clinical acumen. Identifying the correct dementia, and determining a probable prognosis, allows agreement on appropriate management and care with patients and their carers.

But how much testing is needed? What do the tests tell you? What management options are available?

Dementia provides a progressive approach to help you identify and manage the many forms of this complex and devastating disease. Dr Quinn has assembled a team of expert neurologists and gerontologists to provide the foundation knowledge you need to develop the clinical wisdom for effective dementia care. Dementia clearly explains the diagnosis, investigations and management for
* Normal pressure hydrocephalus
* Mild cognitive impairment
* Alzheimer's disease
* Vascular dementia
* Dementia with Lewy bodies
* Fronto-temporal dementia

Clinical in approach, practical in execution, Dementia helps you diagnose and treat your patients more effectively.

Note Editore

Dementia is a complex disease that can be hard to identify early on and requires a progressive approach to management. This book uses the practical approach of the Neurology in Practice series to help physicians chart a path through these choppy waters.The book is part of the Neurology in Practice series, the aim of which is to provide a clinical in the office' or at thebedside' guide to effective patient care for neurologists in practice and in training. The tone will be practical, not academic. The working assumption is that readers want to know what (and what not) might or should be done, without over emphasis on the why. That said, it is important to review the crucial basic science necessary for effective diagnosis and management, and to provide reminders in the context of the practical chapters. The books will not be heavily referenced, in line with a more practical approach. This allows for smoother reading (and also relieves the burden of comprehensive citing from authors). Key evidence (clinical trials, Cochrane or other meta analyses) should be summarized in Evidence at a Glance' boxes and key references such as reviews, major papers can be provided in the selected bibliography' at the end of each chapter. Practical guidance will be provided through: the use of algorithms and guidelines where they are appropriate Tips and Tricks' boxes - hints on improving outcomes perhaps via practical technique, patient questioning etc Caution' warning boxes - hints on avoiding problems, perhaps via contraindications Science Revisited' - quick reminder of the basic science principles necessary for understanding
