Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher L Kramer, B.S., M.D.(Mayo Clinic Arizona)
Description: This comprehensive neurocritical care reference, uniquely authored by many experts in the field, is designed to serve as a quick guide for neurological emergencies while also including the essential elements used in clinical decision-making.
Purpose: It is intended as a concise and user-friendly reference for clinicians, but with the more comprehensive elements often encountered in handbooks. This book is needed, as brevity is often required for quick decision-making in neurocritical care, and the incorporation of the "hows and whys" supplies the knowledge required for conceptualization and adaptation.
Audience: Although the audience is not specified, it can be inferred that the book is written for the resident to attending level for neurohospitalists, vascular neurologists, or neurointensivists. This is the first book since the 1980s written by multiple experts in the field.
Features: The fundamentals of emergency neurology and critical care begin the book, which then progresses to include aspects of the basic science and cerebrovascular physiology of the patient in the neurointensive care unit. Later sections focus on specific disease entities encountered in neurocritical care, neurological complications and consultations, and imaging and advanced monitoring. Cerebrovascular neurology is proportionally more represented, as would be expected given that is often the patient demographic in a neurointensive care unit. The illustrations and visual algorithms are excellent. The layout of the book and various boxes increase the readability of a text that is already smooth and concise. However, in the attempt to be condensed, some material, such as electrolyte management, is absent.
Assessment: This book accomplishes its aim. It is concise and easy-to-read and provides more than just the essential information. While it is not as comprehensive as The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology, Wijdicks (Oxford University Press, 2010), it is more concise and can even be used as a pocket reference. Overall, this is an essential book for residents, fellows, neurohospitalists, vascular neurologists, and neurointensivists.
