About this book

In order to reduce the number of deaths from severe head injuries, systematic management is essential. This book is a practical, comprehensive guide to the treatment of patients (both adults and children) with such injuries, from the time of initial contact through to the rehabilitation center. Sections are devoted to prehospital treatment, admission and diagnostics, acute management, and neurointensive care and rehabilitation. Evidence-based recommendations are presented for each diagnostic and therapeutic measure, and tips, tricks, and pitfalls are highlighted. Throughout, the emphasis is on the provision of sound clinical advice that will maximize the likelihood of an optimal outcome. Helpful flowcharts designed for use in daily routine are also provided. The authors are all members of the Scandinavian Neurotrauma Committee and have extensive practical experience in the areas  they write about.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“A unique collection of 72 topics in eight sections contributed by competent authorities in each field and covers almost all aspects necessary for the management of severe TBI ranging from epidemiology, prehospital care to follow up and rehabilitation. The present book, which emphasizes the need for practical approach to manage severe TBI, can be of great interest for many, including neurosurgeons, intensive care specialists, nurses, experts in the field of neuro-rehabilitation, and all who are involved in the management of such sick patients.” (Amit Agarwal, Journal of Neurosciences in Rural Practice, Vol. 4 (1), 2013)

“This book presents a Scandinavian consensus statement on the management of head trauma. … Practitioners or senior trainees with an interest in brain injury are an appropriate audience for this work originating from the Scandinavian Neurotrauma Committee. … Chapters are succinct and clearly written and make good use of shading to highlight important points. … This is an important consensus statement built from European and particularly Scandinavian strategies. … This is a valuable reference for clinicians managing patients with head injuries.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2012)
