The quintessential reference for bedside medical management of neurocritical care patients
Medical management of patients in the neurocritical care unit (NCCU) often spells the difference between life or death and return to normal function or a lifetime disability. As such, it is vital that patients with life-threatening neurological and neurosurgical illnesses receive prompt diagnosis and rapid interventions in the NCCU.
The Jefferson Manual for Neurocritical Care by renowned neurosurgeon Jack I. Jallo, neurointensive care physician Jacqueline S. Urtecho, and distinguished colleagues is a high-yield pocket resource ideal for the bedside care of patients with serious, life-altering diseases. Nineteen concise chapters encompass cerebrovascular, neuromuscular, oncologic, and traumatic conditions, as well as core clinical topics applicable to the care of neurocritical patients.
This manual is an indispensable resource for neurocritical care residents and fellows, NCCU nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, general intensive care physicians, and neurointensivists.
