About this Textbook

This book presents a student-centric, problem-based approach to learning key issues in neuroanesthesia and neurocritical care, a concept that is gaining popularity and acceptance in the medical education field. Each chapter starts with a brief case scenario describing the condition, followed by series of questions and answers covering important aspects like differential diagnosis, associated co-morbidity, preoperative evaluation and preparation, intraoperative anesthetic management, postoperative management and prognosis. Featuring questions to engage readers, and providing answers based on reason and supported by evidence and references, the book is a valuable educational aid for trainees and residents. It also offers insights into the real-world clinical situations, making it of interest to practicing anesthesiologists and neuroanesthesiologists.
