Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: Pathophysiology and Management

Front Cover
Joshua B. Bederson
Thieme, 1997 - Medical - 283 pages

Due to its unique epidemiological characteristics, the incidence of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) has remained unchanged over time. However, during the past 20 years many advances have improved our understanding and treatment of SAH and its consequences. Subarachnoid Hemorrhage is the first book to synthesize those advances and to focus on the pathophysiology and treatment of SAH.

After reading Subarachnoid Hemorrhage, the physician will understand the epidemiology, natural history and modern day outcome of SAH.

In addition, the physician will understand and comprehend:

  • Aspects of molecular, cellular, pharmacological and physiological mechanisms of brain injury induced by SAH
  • The causes and treatments of the wide range of secondary neurological sequelae, including elevated intracranial pressure, seizures and epilepsy, vasospasm and coma
  • The non-neurological complications of SAH including cardiac and systemic medical complications and cognitive impairment
  • Neuroanesthesia, critical care and rehabilitation of patients and controversies in their management
