This report of a meeting held at the 10th European Congress of Neurosurgery, Berlin, in 1995 covers the current management of severe head injury. Crucial to the long term survival and wellbeing of brain injured persons is the early recognition and prevention of ischaemia. This book describes the current thoughts of the experts in the field. It is both a practical guide to head injury management and a review of current knowledge of the mechanisms of brain ischaemia and its prevention or reversal. It is vital reading for everyone involved in the management of trauma, from those in the roadside staff in Accident and Emergency and intensive care units.
