About this book

Neurocritical Care: A Guide to Practical Management provides  clear and concise guidelines for the clinician, on the management of adult brain injured patients.  It steers the clinician through the complicated decisions that are demanded in these cases, involving initial assessment, interpretation of radiological investigations, referral to a Regional Neurosurgical Center, prevention  of secondary brain injury and the management of complex clinical scenarios such as Status epilepticus.  This book will prove an indispensible aid for making these critical decisions.

Including tried and tested proformas for swift and accurate communication of information to Regional Neurosurgical Centers, this book equips the clinician to get the most out of these specialist services.  This book also addresses the difficult area of defining futility and withdrawal of care, ranging from the role of neuro-radiological imaging in aiding these decisions to a discussion of the complex ethical dilemmas that the clinician is inevitably faced with.

A comprehensive easy-reference, Neurocritical Care is essential reading for those working within the primary referring centre in Emergency Medicine, Anesthesia, Intensive Care and Surgery.

Reviews

From the reviews: “This review of resuscitation and critical care principles for patients in neurologic crisis is part of the Competency-Based Critical Care series. … Emergency and critical care staff in general hospitals are an appropriate audience for this work … . majority of authors are neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neuroradiologists. … This is one of several newly available books in this area. I recommend this one for its concise and clear presentation, excellent illustrations, and protocols. … a good clinical quick read for the neuro intensive care unit.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2010)
