About this title:
Patients in the neuro-intensive care unit pose many clinical challenges for the attending physician. Even experienced clinicians occasionally arrive at the point where diagnostic, work-up, treatment, or prognostic thinking becomes stymied. In daily practice, neurocritical care pertains not only to managing deteriorating patients and treating complications, but also to end-of-life care, which involves assisting families with difficult decisions.
Part of the "What Do I Do Now?" series, which utilizes a case-based approach and a conversational tone, Neurocritical Care provides insight into interventions in acute neurologic disorders, with emphasis on how to handle comparatively common clinical problems emergently.
New to the second edition are cases on monitoring and prognostication. All cases have been carefully revised, and new information, references, and practical tables have been added.
Neurocritical Care is both an engaging collection of thought-provoking cases and a self-assessment tool that tests the reader's ability to answer the question: "What do I do now?".
