Abstract

Neurocritical Care provides “at the bedside” guidance on the medical knowledge and technical skills required to care for critically ill patients with neurologic conditions such as cerebrovascular disorders, neurotrauma, neuro-oncology, refractory seizures, neuromuscular diseases, infections, alterations in consciousness, and perioperative neurosurgical care. It provides information on the clinical conditions, basic and advanced neuro-monitoring, and addresses some unique special populations. Part of the Pittsburgh Critical Care Medicine series, this compact volume is an ideal reference for physicians and trainees working in either a general intensive care unit or specialty neurointensive care unit. Readers will gain an understanding of background knowledge and concrete solutions to questions and situations encountered in daily practice.
