Overview

The standard text and reference on neurological and neurosurgical intensive care is now in its Fourth Edition–thoroughly revised to incorporate the latest therapeutic advances and insights from the most recent clinical trials. A team of distinguished neuro-intensivists offers practical, state-of-the-art guidelines for managing the wide range of problems arising in postoperative neurosurgical care and care of patients with acute neurological diseases.

This edition focuses sharply on the details of therapeutics. The authors, from leading neuro-intensive care units, have written the book collectively, giving it more cohesiveness and more of an authoritative consensus voice than previous multiauthored editions.
