9780195140798: Neurologic Complications of Critical Illness

This second edition of the definitive volume on the diagnosis and management of neurologic complications during critical illness has been thoroughly revised and expanded to bring the book up-to-date. Important features include information on neurologic complications in organ transplant recipients, muscle and nerve injury in critical illness, status epilepticus, cerebral edema, multisystem trauma including cervical spine and traumatic brain injury, and prognosis. The second edition includes entirely new chapters on:
*Evaluation of coma focused on structural causes
*Neurologic complications in the critically ill pregnant patient
*Ethical issues and practical problems with withdrawl of life support
New material on:
*Pathophysiological mechanisms (set off in different type so that these sections can be read separately)
*Neuroimaging studies (including the addition of two pages of full color plates)
*Electrophysical examples including EEG, evoked potentials, and nerve conduction studies
The first edition (published under the title Neurology of Critical Illness by F.A. Davis in 1995) was highly praised as a concise, practical volume introducing this new and rapidly-evolving specialty that focuses on the care of patients in general medicine and sugical intensive care units with significant disease of the nervous system, either as a primary event or secondary to involvement of organs outside the nervous system. The book is intended for neurologists, intensivists, anesthesiologists, pulmonologists, neurosurgeons, neurology and ICU nurses, and transplant surgeons.

Review:


From Reviews of the First Edition:


"...chock-full of relevant information for the consulting neurologist or treating intensivist...This is a pleasure to read and is highly recommended. It should be of interest to all who deal with critical care neurology." -- Neurology


"...This book should be useful for anesthesiologists practicing critical care medicine, because it does place in one volume many clinical pearls concerning interaction of the neurologic system with critical illness...It should be part of every anesthesia department's library and part of the personal library of practicing critical care anesthesiologists." -- Anesthesia and Analgesia


"...the volume is well organized, thoroughly indexed, and practical...a valuable volume to have in the ICU for ready reference...an excellent reference for internists and neurology students." -- Annals of Neurology


"This book is highly recommended and should be available to all neurologists, neurosurgeons, intensivists, nurses, and other health care personnel involved in the care of critically ill patients." --The Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences


"The second edition is a book that all trainees in neurology should read and indeed all of us should have available to us when we visit patients in an intensive care unit. The difficult questions that we are increasingly asked about diagnosis and prognosis will be readily answered by this book, which I firmly and unreservedly recommend."--N. Cartlidge in J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry
