  • Details

The complete continuum of care from assessment, monitoring, and condition specific management through rehabilitation.

Early chapters present differential diagnosis and management approaches to common overarching problems such as coma, headache, and elevated intracranial pressure, followed by chapters focusing on the evaluation and management of specific conditions including traumatic brain injury, stroke, seizures, central nervous system infections, and demyelinating disorders. The final chapters address important associated psychological, social, and ethical issues.

To reflect the full spectrum of specialties involved in the burgeoning field of pediatric neurocritical care, the book brings together an international group of experts from multiple disciplines including critical care medicine, anesthesiology, neurology, neurosurgery, rehabilitation medicine, psychology, and pediatric subspecialties.
