Neurointensive Care

Hemanshu Prabhakar (Editor)

Dealing with intensive care patients with neurological problems requires specialized knowledge. Neurointensive Care adopts a problem- and condition-based approach to present all possible neurologic conditions that intensivists encounter in managing such patients. The book brings together contributions from 74 national and international experts on topics ranging from basic principles of neurointensive care, neurologic examination, postoperative care, clinical monitoring, and pharmacologic care to brain death, ethical issues, nursing care, psychological care, and palliative care.Supporting these topics is a section on common but challenging procedures performed in neurointensive care; an appendix containing the guidelines related to intensive care management, and clinical scales and scores commonly used in the neurological ICU; and a DVD containing video tutorials of various clinical procedures. This book is a comprehensive ready reckoner for trainees, students, and practitioners of neuroanesthesia and neurointensive care.
