Abstract

This resource is a comprehensive guide to neuroanesthesia that discusses neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, and neurosurgical procedures, and offers practical approaches and solutions to administering neuroanesthesia and providing perioperative care for neurosurgical patients. It discusses how close cooperation between the anesthesiologist and neurosurgeon is essential to achieve optimal outcomes and early recognition of any adverse events so appropriate therapy can be implemented. Chapters emphasize clinical management of neurosurgical problems that may be encountered in community practice, as well as at major academic medical centers. Highlighted key points, figures, algorithms, and management procedures supplement the text.
