Description

This is a practical and accessible review of neurologic critical care in the intensive care unit. The emphasis is on management in day-to-day practice. For the thoroughly updated and expanded second edition, the author has added new algorithms on outcome prediction in the specific disorders, and five new chapters on the organisation of the intensive care unit, acute spinal disorders, management of common postoperative neurosurgical complications, and psychosocial issues, ethics, and withdrawal of life support. For quick reference in the ICU the most useful tables and figures have been extracted and reprinted in an accompanying pocket-sized booklet.show more

... this is a tremendous book containing a wealth of valuable information, well referenced and well organised, and would be of value to any neurologist who cares for patients on an ICU. Journal of Neurology, Vol 251, No 3 ... I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to all practitioners who manage patients with critical neurological illness, whether on a daily or an occasional basis. It contains a remarkable wealth and breadth of information. Brainshow more
