Covers all monitoring, imaging, and surgical modalities used in neurointensive care
Provides evidence-based data and includes algorithms to facilitate decision making and key points in each chapter
Examines the neurological problems most frequently encountered in intensive care
Listening to an injured brain is not easy.
It takes knowledge, dedication, and understanding of the critically ill patient and their family. It takes an appreciation of the logistics of care in these difficult times of imbalance between more and sicker patients and fewer medical specialists. The impact of the right personnel, whose interest and training is in neurocritical care, has shown promise, both in terms of improving patient outcome and quality.
The editors have updated this second edition with the latest knowledge and trends. Gathering together a group of international experts who champions the three characteristics – Patient and Family Centered High Quality Care, Education, and Discovery – needed in our Neuro–ICUs, the editors present to the reader a comprehensive textbook of neurocritical care, incorporating best practice / evidence-based medicine and performance improvement.
This book is not an effort to embellish the shelf of a medical library; it is a practical bedside friend to be used to improve the neurological outcomes of those for whom we are honored to care: our patients.
