This second edition of the CNS volume originally published in 1995 as Neurology of Critical Illness, is a thorough revision to bring the book up to date and include new information on neurologic complications in organ transplant recipients, muscle and nerve injury in critical illness, and prognostication. It includes entirely new chapters on evaluation of coma focused on structural causes, neurologic complications in the critically ill pregnant patient, and withdrawal of life support.

Review quote

The second edition is a book that all trainees in neurology should read and indeed all of us should have available to us when we visit patients in an intensive care unit. The difficult questions that we are increasingly asked about diagnosis and prognosis will be readily answered by this book, which I firmly and unreservedly recommend.
