Single-authored and therefore cohesive, this is a practical and accessible review of neurologic critical care in the intensive care unit.
For this thoroughly updated and expanded second edition, Wijdicks has added new algorithms on outcome prediction in the specific disorders, and five chapters on the organization of the intensive care unit, acute spinal disorders, management of common postoperative neurosurgical complications, and psychosocial issues, ethics, and withdrawal of life support.
