The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology serves as the definitive authoritative reference on the care of the patient with a critical neurologic disorder at risk of deterioration and in need of immediate attention. This work is an expanded new edition of the book on the management of patients with critical neurologic disorders. This single-authored monograph is broad in scope and follows the patients from the very moment they enter the emergency department to their care in the neurosciences intensive care unit.

This book condenses the essential information into several sections. These are: The General Principles of Recognition of Critically Ill Neurologic Patients in the Emergency Department, The Evaluation of Presenting Symptoms Indicating Urgency and Critical Emergency, General Principles of Management of Critically Ill Patients, Monitoring Devices and Diagnostic Tests, Complete Management of Specific Disorders in the Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit, Postoperative Neurosurgical and Neurointerventional Complications, Management of Medical Complications and End of Life Care.

This accessibly written book differs from the conventional by specifically following the time course of clinical complexities as they emerge and change. It offers advice on how to diagnose and manage acute neuromuscular respiratory failure, acute worrisome headache, acute febrile confusion, acute diplopia, acute movement disorders, acute paraplegia, seizures and coma of uncertain cause in the emergency department. The major disorders requiring neurocritical care are covered in great detail and include traumatic brain injury aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, cerebral hemorrhage, hemispheric ischemic stroke, basilar artery occlusion, acute bacterial meningitis and encephalitis, myasthenic crisis and severe Guillan Barre syndrome. This book comes with a pocket book of selected tables and figures. This booklet covers all essential points for quick reference and has been considered a 'survival guide' for the house staff.

Review:


"Dr. Wijdicks has produced another superb and practical summary of the field, peppered with his own considerable experience. The unified tone and approach in the book is a great advantage, especially to those starting out. Experienced practitioners will find many important but controversial issues well addressed along with invaluable advice. This is a major reference work for all aspects of acute neurology."
- Allan H. Ropper, MD, Executive Vice Chair, Department of Neurology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, MA


"Dr. Wijdicks has successfully combined descriptions of the complexity of acute neurologic diagnosis with the spirit of urgent symptom-focused emergency treatment. This book is an excellent resource for every emergency department and intensive care unit. Furthermore, it is a must read for anyone studying for the neurocritical care boards."
- J. Claude Hemphill III, MD, MAS, Kenneth Rainin Chair in Neurocritical Care, Associate Professor of Neurology and Neurological Surgery, University of California, San Francisco and Director, Neurovascular and Neurocritical Care Program, Department of Neurology, San Francisco General Hospital, San Francisco, CA


I wholeheartedly recommend The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology to all those practitioners who look after acutely ill neurological patients; it is bound to become their close companion."
-- Dr Nicholas Hirsch FRCA FRCP, Consultant Neuroanaesthetist, Medical Research Council Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases, Institute of Neurology, Queen Square, London


"While the book is authoritative and well referenced, the reading experience is more akin to a curbside consult with the expert than a dry recitation of facts and figures. Content is arranged in a manner reflective of the course of clinical care, beginning with evaluation of presenting signs and symptoms (e.g., terrible headache, comatose), progressing to ommonly encountered critical ca
