about

The book sets out to review important experimental and clinical studies, with emphasis on recent publication. The text on each issue and sub-issue describes experimental and clinical studies separately. Twelve topics are covered. In the opening three chapters methodology of CBF measurements, regulations of CBF, and intracranial pressure are described. The next six chapters review inhalation anaesthetics, hypnotic agents, analgesics, muscular relaxants, drugs used for control of blood pressure, and the sitting position. The last three chapters cover head injury, subarachnoid haemorrhage and cerebral ischaemia. This volume offers precious assistance in daily practice in neuroanaesthesia and in neurointensive care, when questions concerning therapy and management may have to be solved swiftly. It also helps researchers in neurointensive care to find relevant up-to-date references, and serves as an inspiration to all people who want to explore the field of neuroscience.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book reviews and summarizes experimental and clinical studies pertinent to the fields of neuroanaesthesia and neurointensive care. . The authors have managed to summarize an enormous amount of research and thanks to the short subsections within the chapters, the information is presented in a form that is easily absorbed. Moreover, the subject index is well structured . . Neurosurgeons who need to familiarize themselves with the specific problems of the intensive care setting will find the chapters on drugs very helpful." (L. A. Steiner, British Journal of Neurosurgery, Vol. 16 (3), 2002)"The 12 topics in this book range from methods for measurement of cerebral blood flow to head injury management, aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage, and the sitting position. . I was impressed by the thoroughness of approach and will certainly dip again into the chapters . . I now have a source of information on which to modify or continue current practice in our neurosciences intensive care unit, and will point any potential researchers in the direction of this book . ." (S. Hill, British Journal of Anaesthesia, Vol. 88 (3), 2002)
