Fully updated and revised, the second edition of The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology puts a more modern approach on the practice of emergency neurological care. When most texts within the field focus on the theoretical aspects, this book concentrates on the management ofneurologic conditions, recognition of deterioration of neurologic functions, neurosurgical procedures, and immediate interventions. This text also presents hard data to explain why we do what we do. Dr. Wijdicks condenses essential information into several sections comprising of the principles in recognizing critically ill neurologic patients in the emergency department, the evaluation of symptoms indicating critical emergency, general principles of managing critically ill patients, monitoringdevices and diagnostic tests, complete management of specific disorders in the neurosciences intensive care unit, postoperative neurosurgical and neurointerventional complications, management of medical complications, and end of life care.This is the go-to guide for every physician, staff neurologist, neurointensivist, resident, and fellow in training with managing acutely ill neurologic patients.

Editorial Reviews

"Practical and comprehensive are probably the best words to summarize Eelco F M Wijdicks' The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology. Wijdicks' textbook comprehensively covers the specialty of emergency and critical care neurology including differential diagnoses, the meaning oftechnical monitoring, and differential pharmacological and procedural therapy. At the same time, this book can be used as a practical quick reference. This is as much a reference book for the neurointensivist as it is a teaching book for the young emergency doctor. Compared with the many other bookson neurointensive care, the read is refreshingly smooth, which might be because this is a single-author book." --Thorsten Steiner, The Lancet
