Neurology of critical illness
The patient in intensive care following surgery, trauma, cardiac arrest, or other medical conditions often displays neurologic complications that demand timely and appropriate diagnosis and treatment. Complications like generalized weakness, seizures, coma, or new stroke affect many patients in surgical or medical intensive care units. Neurology of Critical Illness is the first book that helps you know what to look for in each of these patients and offers you practical advice about the best way to deal with each problem.
