Neurocritical Care

by Michel T. Torbey

Editor Torbey (neurology and neurosurgery, Medical College of Wisconsin) and 57 contributors provide a reference for physicians who work with critically ill and neurosurgical patients. Specifically, it is intended for those physicians who are not neurologists but who must treat patients in medical or surgical intensive care units--and offers guidance in management and treatment for those physicians. The authors address the principles of neurocritical care, management of specific disorders in the neurocritical care unit, neuromonitoring, and management of medical disorders. The book is very well written and formatted. Chapters include extensive references and illustrations are clear and nicely explained. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)
