Essentials of Neurosurgical Anesthesia & Critical Care is an aid for both experienced and novice practitioners of neuroanesthesia and neurologic critical care. Focusing on day-to-day clinical practice, this invaluable guide helps the first-line health care provider anticipate and resolve problems and complications in neurosurgical anesthesia and critical care. Complications are organized chronologically according to when they are likely to appear during the course of the neurosurgical patient’s hospital stay and are subdivided by procedure or condition so that they are easy to locate. A structured algorithmic format leads the reader from problem to solution. Lavish illustrations and tables provide quick and easy reference. Additional chapters provide compact reviews of the fundamentals of adult and pediatric neurosurgery, interventional neuroradiology, and postoperative care. Both editors have extensive knowledge and experience in these areas and have held leadership roles in the Society of Neuroscience in Anesthesia and Critical Care. Essentials of Neurosurgical Anesthesia & Critical Care reflects the strong belief that perioperative medicine is multidisciplinary and that patient care is best delivered in a genuine collaborative approach.
