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.

Eelco F. M. Wijdicks is Professor of Neurology, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Chair of the Division of Critical Care Neurology, and Consultant, Neurological Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN.
"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 care management issues and discussions of specific disorders. Illustrative figures and tables supplement the text, many now in color...This new edition belongs on the office shelf of anyone who treats patients with neurologic ergencies, where it is sure to become a well-thumbed resource." --Doody's "The name Eelco Wijdicks is synonymous with the development of the specialty of neurocritical care and with the publication of The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology he has produced a comprehensive account of the specialty. He achieves this by combining the latest science with his wealth of personal experience and the result is a work which will appeal to neurologists, anesthesiologists, intensivists, neurosurgeons, emergency room physicians and all allied specialties working with acutely ill neurological patients." -- American Academy of Neruology "Practical and comprehensive are probably the best words to summarise Eelco F M Wijdicks' The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology. Wijdicks' textbook comprehensively covers the specialty of emergency and critical care neurology including differential diagnoses, the meaning of technical monitoring, and differential pharmacological and procedural therapy. At the same time, this book can be used as a practical quick reference. This is as much a reference book for the neurointensivist as it is a teaching book for the young emergency doctor. Compared with the many other books on neurointensive care, the read is refreshingly smooth, which might be because this is a single-author book." -- Thorsten Steiner, The Lancet "Practical and comprehensive are probably the best words to summarise Eelco F M Wijdick's The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology. ... Wijdick's textbook comprehensively covers the specialty of emergency and critical care neurology including differential diagnoses, the meaning of technical monitoring, and differential pharmacological and procedural therapy.
