This book provides an easy-to-read introduction to the many topics in neuroanaesthesia for postgraduate trainees undertaking a neuro-module as part of their training. It is designed to be comprehensive but concise and as such will be an ideal complement to the Textbook of Neuroanaesthesia and Critical Care as well as a useful 'aide memoire' for examination candidates. It will also serve as a useful quick reference for other ICU staff such as critical care nurses or ODAs.
