This book offers a practical tool for handling neuromuscular emergencies, and is divided by the main neuromuscular diseases on the basis of their anatomical and clinical location: diseases affecting the anterior horn of the spinal cord (tetanus), those that affect the nerve roots and nerves (SGB, multiple mononeuritis, porphyria), the neuromuscular junction (MG and botulism) and, lastly, muscle pathologies (rhabdomyolysis, malignant hyperthermia, periodic paralysis). It provides updated diagnos…

Abstract
This book offers a practical tool for handling neuromuscular emergencies, and is divided by the main neuromuscular diseases on the basis of their anatomical and clinical location: diseases affecting the anterior horn of the spinal cord (tetanus), those that affect the nerve roots and nerves (SGB, multiple mononeuritis, porphyria), the neuromuscular junction (MG and botulism) and, lastly, muscle pathologies (rhabdomyolysis, malignant hyperthermia, periodic paralysis). It provides updated diagnostic/therapeutic protocols and decision-making algorithms for each pathology, and examines a range of scenarios on the basis of clinical cases. Emergencies in Neuromuscular Disease will be of interests for a wide variety of specialists including neurologist, neurophysiologists and anesthesiologists.

E-FAST (extended focused assessment by sonograpy for trauma) represents the basic ultrasonographic approach to any trauma patient. Identification or exclusion of free fluid and air in the abdominal and thoracic cavities plays a pivotal role in deciding the immediate diagnostic and therapeutic path. Learning E-FAST is mandatory for all acute care surgeons and all physicians involved in trauma management. The structure of the book and its practical approach will make it an easy-to-consult and qui…

Abstract
E-FAST (extended focused assessment by sonograpy for trauma) represents the basic ultrasonographic approach to any trauma patient. Identification or exclusion of free fluid and air in the abdominal and thoracic cavities plays a pivotal role in deciding the immediate diagnostic and therapeutic path. Learning E-FAST is mandatory for all acute care surgeons and all physicians involved in trauma management. The structure of the book and its practical approach will make it an easy-to-consult and quick reference tool for beginners and a useful support for more experienced professionals.
