Patients in the neurointensive care unit pose many clinical challenges for the attending physician. Even experienced clinicians occasionally arrive at the point where diagnostic, work-up, treatment, or prognostic thinking becomes blocked. Neurocritical Care is the next volume in the What Do I Do Now? series and provides the clinician with specific focus and insight on interventions in acute neurologic disorders. Neurocritical care in daily practice pertains to managing deteriorating patients, treatment of complications but also end-of-life care assisting families with difficult decisions. Written with a conversational tone and using a case- based approach, Neurocritical Care emphasizes how to handle comparatively common clinical problems emergently.
