Very few hospitals have dedicated neurointensive care units for management of critically ill neurological and neurosurgical patients. Frequently, these patients are managed in the medical or surgical ICU by non-neurologists, who have a hard time appreciating the delicate needs of these patients. This book is a straightforward, practical reference for treating physicians who need to deal with a wide range of complex conditions and associated medical problems. Although comprehensive in scope, Dr Michel T. Torbey has designed this book for neurologists and physicians in the ICU who need a concise and thorough guide to management and treatment. It emphasizes practical state-of-the-art suggestions for management and treatment and provides accessible, easy-to-follow, highly structured, and focused protocols for the assessment, day-to-day management, and treatment of critically ill patients in various ICU divisions.

• Written for both neurologists/neurosurgeons AND other specialists working in the Intensive Care Unit
• The only book to cover both medical and neurological aspects of critical care
• Straightforward, practical reference, with easy-to-follow, highly structured, and focused protocols for assessment, day-to-day management, and treatment
