Atlas of Migraine and Other Headaches 2nd Edition PDF Free Download
It is rare for medical students to have more than one lecture on headache management during their education, and residents in training, even in neurology, rarely get any more formal training.We have tried, through this Atlas, to demonstrate the problem of headache from a visual perspective. For many, learning from pictures and diagrams is educational and more enjoyable than through the printed word. By presenting information on headache in a visual format, we hope to educate caregivers to better recognize head pain complaints and ultimately provide better care for patients. Chronic head and face pain may be either a result of numerous disorders or a symptom of a more ominous secondary cause. Correct diagnosis is essential for proper treatment. To assist the clinician, we include the history of headache, its epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment. We address migraine, tension-type, and cluster headache, in addition to the rare or more unusual primary and secondary headache disorders. We have tried to include classic images from other texts, as well as new images that illustrate the disorders and reflect the most current thinking. This compilation of slides, images, graphs, paintings, and drawings has been obtained from physicians from all over the world. We would like to thank the many physicians and researchers who have contributed to the success of this Atlas. Without their willingness to share their images and data we would not be able to present this topic in this format.We hope that this edition of the Atlas offers an overview of the numerous disorders that cause head pain, provides a better understanding for those treating these disorders, and results in better care for those who suffer with these disorders.
