The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology follows patients from the very moment they enter the emergency department, where the neurologist makes on-the-spot decisions—to their admission to the neurologic intensive care unit (NICU), where neurointensivists assume full responsibility for patient care. The core of the book is devoted to specific disorders in critical care neurology. Each chapter is structured in a unique way, in that it focuses on diagnosis, interpretation of neuroimaging, first steps in management, problem-solving for deteriorating patients, and an estimation of outcome The book focusses on medical complications that can be expected for any patient with an acute serious neurologic illness. These complications involve a consuming part of day-to-day care and may endanger the patient in many ways. Practical advice is provided to manage them effectively. This book serves as a reference on care of the patient with a critical neurologic disorder, at risk of deterioration, and in need of immediate attention.
