An authoritative and comprehensive review of the most important clinical issues facing critically ill neurologic and neurosurgical patients. The authors provide pertinent basic, clinical, diagnostic, and management guidelines for all the conditions commonly encountered in the neurocritical care unit, including the management of autonomic disorders that require critical care, postoperative management, and endovascular treatment. The authors also discuss the latest developments in the monitoring of different body systems, emphasizing the management of cardiorespiratory complications and other medical conditions that may threaten the patient's life. Also detailed are the concepts of intracranial physiology and current neuromonitoring techniques, subjects whose understanding is basic to effective management of critically ill neurologic patients. Numerous tables, figures, diagrams, and radiographs simplify and explicate both the diagnostic and therapeutic processes.

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 compli-cations, 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.

Patients in the neurointensive 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 to managing deteriorating patients, treatment of complications but also end-of-life care assisting families with difficult decisions. Part of the "What Do I Do Now?" series, Neurocritical Care provides insight into interventions in acute neurologic disorders. Using a case-based approach, this volume emphasizes how to handle comparatively common clinical problems emergently. New to this 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?"

This new book deals systematically with the assessment and treatment of small animal neurological patients in light of latest research findings and greatly improved imaging techniques. The authors first discuss step-wise neurological and systemic approaches to common emergency cases—examination, critical care and rapid assessment—based on presenting signs. They then deal in depth with the pathophysiology, treatment options and likely prognoses of each of the more common types of neurological emergency, be it vascular accident, infection, trauma, seizure, acute disease or neoplasia. Detailed support techniques and therapies are provided on emergency anaesthesia, pain management, fluid therapy, post-operative care and physical rehabilitation. The book will appeal to small animal practitioners, specialists, residents, course directors and students interested in neurology, emergency medicine and critical care, internal medicine, imaging and pathology.
