This is a multiauthored book amounting to 301 pages and compiled from papers presented at the second Chicago Symposium on Neuro-Trauma. The numerous contributions are primarily aimed toward the pathophysiology of the CNS response to trauma. The book is organized into major sections consisting of (1) prognostic consideration in injury, (2) blood brain barrier, (3) respiratory pathophysiology, (4) cerebral microcirculation, and (5) pressure volume relationships.

The authors are well versed in their individual subjects and are well known from their extensive experimental work on the topics that they discuss. Many of the authors have contributed multiple manuscripts to this book. The majority of the material has a strong physiological basis, and thereby excellent reviews of the respiratory effects on CNS circulation and cellular activity, review of the blood brain barrier, and cerebral microvascular responses may be found within this volume.
