Book Description :

This book is an invaluable review of neurologic critical care in the intensive care unit. The emphasis is on management in day-to-day practice. Part I is devoted to basic management of critically ill patients with acute neurologic diseases. Part II covers the technology and procedures used in the intensive care unit. Part III discusses the management of specific disorders in critical care neurology. Part IV deals with the management of postoperative neurosurgical complications. Part V covers the management of systemic complications. The final section, Part VI, discusses decisions at the end of life and other responsibilities. An appendix is devoted to the calculation of important variables and provides reference tables for daily practice. For quick reference in the intensive care unit the most useful tables and figures have been extracted by the author and reprinted in an accompanying pocket-sized booklet. For this thoroughly revised second edition, there are five new chapters on the organization of the intensive care unit and code of conduct of the neurointensivist, acute spinal disorders, the management of common postoperative neurosurgical complications (two chapters), ethics and legal problems, and withdrawal of life support. Also new to this edition are algorithms on outcome prediction in the specific disorders. This scholarly and yet accessible and practical book spans the entire field of acute neurology but remains cohesive as it is single-authored. Like the first edition, the second will be widely used by neurologists, specialists in neurologic intensive care, neurologists training in neurologic critical care and stroke fellowships, anesthesiologists, neurosurgeons, critical care specialists of all types, emergency physicians, residents in neurology and neurosurgery, and neuroscience nurses.

Book Description :

Critical Care Neurology, Part I: Neurocritical Care focuses on the care specialists and general neurologists that consult in the ICU and their work with patients in acute, life-threatening situations who are dealing with neurologic or neurosurgical crises emanating from either a preexisting neurologic syndrome or from a new neurologic complication appearing as a result of another medical or surgical critical illness. These two separate clinical situations form the pillars of neurocritical care, hence these practices are addressed via two separate, but closely related, HCN volumes. Chapters in both focus on pathophysiology and management, and are tailored for both general neurologists and active neurocritical specialists, with a specific focus on management over diagnostics. Part I addresses the principles of neurocritical care and the management of various neurologic diseases. Part II addresses the interplay between neurologic complications and the surgical, medical, cardiac, and trauma of critical illnesses that most typically present in the ICU. Provides an essential neurocritical care overview for general neurologists Presents neurocritical care specialists with an update on severe neurological illness management Offers coverage of all the most frequent neurologic diseases requiring intensive care Includes chapters authored by global leaders in the field, providing the broadest, most expert coverage available on the topics discussed

Book Description :

"Intensive care units exist for patients with severe disease, as well as patients who are expected to be unstable. Unprovoked changes to vital signs, neurological examinations, laboratory results, and imaging are expected. Some events can be anticipated, rescued, or salvaged. One should know what comes next, how to communicate what has happened, and what is likely to happen next. Being responsible for a neurological intensive care unit without knowledge and/or experience should provoke anxiety. This handbook is intended to improve your judgement from the experience of others. Each of the chapters has been authored by an expert in the field. We do not imply that there is no other way to manage neurologically critically ill patients, only that this is one expert way to do so. Others may argue that there are better ways to manage specific problems, and, on occasion, will be correct. Clinicians in search of new knowledge, a refresher, and options should not be disappointed"--

Book Description :

In recent years, neurocritical care has grown and matured as a subspecialty of Critical Care Medicine with the advent of new monitoring, diagnostic, and therapeutic capabilities. The goal of neurocritical care is to rapidly deliver acute medical therapies and appropriate interventions through effective monitoring of both neurological and end organ function. Neurocritical Care provides 'at the bedside' guidance on the medical knowledge and technical skills required to care for critically ill patients with neurologic conditions such as cerebrovascular disorders, neurotrama, neuro-oncology, refractory seizures, neuromuscular diseases, infections, alterations in consciousness, and perioperative neurosurgical care. Part of the Pittsburgh Critical Care Medicine series, this compact volume is an ideal reference for physicians and trainees working in either a general ICU or specialty Neuro ICU unit. Readers will gain an understanding of background knowledge and concrete solutions to questions and situations encountered in daily practice.

Book Description :

The third volume of the series of Atlases deals with the use and usefulness of electroencephalography (EEG) in neurology. While EEG is universally recognized as a first-order investigation method in epilepsy (see Volume 2), and as an important contributor in sleep medicine, practical neurology has tended to neglect the value of this classical and established neurophysiological tool. A rich, extensively commented and analyzed collection of EEG plates is presented here. The reader will be compelled to remember that EEG is the easiest way to assess parameters like state of vigilance, risk of seizure activity, type and degree of functional impairment, in a very clinical and practical setting. The authors cover many aspects of neurological practices where the EEG may help in diagnosis and treatment: metabolic and other encephalopathies, infectious and inflammatory conditions, vascular disorders. It is particularly useful-and difficult- to distinguish between epileptic phenomena and EEG changes associated with metabolic abnormalities: a careful assessment of the EEG is of paramount practical importance here. Migraine is not always simple and there are many overlaps with other types of neurological diseases: the EEG may play a major part in helping the clinician in doubtful cases. Similarly, the diagnosis of dementia does certainly not rest on the EEG but many particular aspects concerning diagnostic overlaps or copathologies are aptly explored by the EEG. Lastly, even the neurosurgeon may need the EEG to monitor trauma, tumor, bleeding

Book Description :

This indispensable title rethinks the neurologic examination in a format tailored, modified, and specialized for neurocritical illness. Generously illustrated, this book provides a detailed clinical assessment of the acutely ill neurologic patient. It explains why certain neurologic signs appear and provides fundamentals of localization. Certain situations demand certain structured examinations. Eventually, all information has to be integrated logically. Different examination techniques may be needed. Recognition of deterioration and increased vigilance with important mimickers and confounders are part of our professional fabric. Other necessary skills include predicting a clinical course and outcome, coordinating effective transfers of unstable patients, and communicating expected clinical changes. Neurologists traditionally have carefully considered the examination findings before acting and localized findings before ordering tests; these heuristics must remain. An indispensable title designed for all learners, Examining Neurocritical Patients preserves the beauty of a comprehensive clinical neurologic examination and serves as a high-yield master class for every health care professional tasked with clinical assessment of a neurocritically ill patient.

Book Description :

Neuromonitoring is the tool of trade in intensive care, and should incorporate cutting edge technology with patience, repeated clinical observation, careful identification of neuroworsening. The aim of the book is to be of practical use, and to assist the clinical practice of the busy physician. The clinical examination belongs to the introductory section of the book, and an abundance of technology, with specific emphasis on the importance of intracranial pressure, comes in the following parts. Since the patient with an injured brain can have chances only if other organs and systems (as the lungs, and the acid-base equilibrium etc.) are preserved, a section of the book covers the interactions between the affected brain and other organs. The way the brain reacts to different insults has common aspects, as inflammatory responses, edema etc., but also specific features. Sections five to nine summarize the most relevant pathologies, from ischemic to hemorrhagic lesions, trauma, tumors etc. and also mentions new‑comers, as the specific problems related to the expanding field of neuroradiological interventions. Finally, neurointensive care does not exist without knowledgeable nurses. The intracranial pressure measurement starts (or unfortunately ends) with a catheter well maintained, and that becomes vital when the drainage of hydrocephalus is concerned. Dealing with patients with severe brain damage has plenty of ethical implications, up to the problems related to brain death and organ donation. This book is published in two volumes.
