Neurological emergencies are health emergencies affecting the body's nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, optic and olfactory nerves, as well as all the nerves outside the central system. Such emergencies may include vascular compromise to these regions. A psychiatric emergency is generally defined as an acute change in behavior, thought, or mood that, if left untreated, may result in significant physical or psychological harm to either the individual or others. Acute neurological disorders are a major cause of emergency room visits.
In medicine, whether in an inpatient or an outpatient setting, clinicians often encounter chief complaints that can be acutely life-threatening. The astute clinician can quickly recognize these situations and properly assess and manage these patients.
Examples of life-threatening neurologic or psychiatric complaints include altered mental status, headache, acute stroke, seizure, meningitis, encephalitis, and suicidal ideation. It is important to understand the clinical signs and symptoms that may signal a life-threatening illness, as well as the steps that must be taken to manage them.
