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.
