Critical Care Neurology

Arch Neurol. 2000;57(5):757. doi:

The book's stated mission is an "updated review of the tactics and techniques used in critical care neurology" and, overall, it serves this purpose well. The book is a collection from 24 distinguished international contributors and joins the growing body of literature in the rapidly emerging field of neuromedical intensive care. The intended audience is anyone, not just specialists in the field, who deals clinically with neurological problems in the intensive care setting. It addresses this group well, sparing the use of arcane terminology. The text generally offers a practical approach to the evaluation and treatment of patients, including interpretations of neuroimaging and other diagnostic tests for each disorder. Also, it covers more commonly used equipment and technologies, in addition to the management of specific disorders, including recent advances in imaging technology, pharmacology, and discussions of pertinent cardiopulmonary issues.
