Caring for children with neurocritical illness often requires multi-specialty collaboration and the understanding of an ever-expanding body of data. This book gives clinicians the up-to-date, concise, and clinically relevant guidance they need to provide optimal care to children with these acute neurologic disorders. The chapters in Pediatric Neurocritical Care are authored by experts in each individual topic, and co-edited by a neurologist and intensivist to ensure that all topics have been fully addressed from both perspectives. The book covers 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 specialities 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. Pediatric Neurocritical Care Features: Every topic is addressed from a neurologic and critical care perspective. Comprehensive coverage includes the evaluation of common overarching problems and management of specific conditions, in addition to discussion of related psychological, ethical, and social issues. Chapters are written by internationally known experts from the fields of critical care medicine, anesthesiology, neurology, neurosurgery, rehabilitation medicine, and many affiliated specialties.
