Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is an excellent text about the medical and surgical management of complications, prevention, mitigation for neurosurgery. … I recommend this book to neurocritical care physicians, anesthetists, fellows, students, neurologists, & neurosurgeons. This is both a useful reference for the inexperienced and more advanced practioner.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, November, 2014)

“Edited by two well-respected clinicians … . This book is unique as a clinical handbook that essentially covers the major topics of neuroanesthesia in their entirety… . this is well-written, well-edited, and well-organized … covers the diversity of perioperative complications and emergencies in neuroanesthesia and critical care. … the impressive list of contributors … have drawn on decades of collective experience while creating this work. ... offers good value … a positive addition to the clinician’s library.” (Ryan S. Smith and Rosemary Ann Craen, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, Vol. 60, November, 2012)

“Veritable compendium … . The contributors … have been chosen from a wide range of centers … . A multispecialty approach is emphasized, with representation not just from the anesthetic community … but also from neurology, neurosurgery, radiology, internists, nursing, and pain management … . most valuable … . Chapters are short, concise, and well written. … The book will not fit into a back pocket but could find a place in the drawer of the anesthetic machine.” (Elizabeth A. M. Frost, Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology, Vol. 24(4), October, 2012)

“This is a handbook on the perioperative and critical care of neurosurgical patients. The purpose is to provide a quick reference for all healthcare professionals who care for neurosurgical patients, in both the perioperative and critical care setting. … Although written for a broad audience, from students to attending physicians, it is most appropriate for nurses and beginning residents.” (Daniel S. Rubin, Doody’s Book Reviews, July, 2012)

“A welcome arrival ... .it provides a comprehensive series of diagnostic analyses and structured algorithmic approaches in all key areas.  A major strength … is its breadth and excellent organisation into 91 short chapters … . Many flow diagrams are provided, illustrating diagnostic protocols for an extensive set of  scenarios … . Encompassing both adult and paediatric anaesthesia, the book has considerable depth of knowledge and detail … . I strongly recommend this handbook ... it should find its way onto the book shelves of all neuroanaesthetists … .” (J. Fraser, Anaesthesia, 2012)
