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.

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.
