Reviews

“The aim is to provide information about the comatose condition, such as prognostic factors, treatment modalities, and social issues involved in caring for those with consciousness disorders. The book meets these objectives by addressing questions that remain to be answered regarding comatose patients. … the book is most appropriate for senior level researchers and physicians.” (Diana L. Tzeng, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2018)
