ABOUT THIS BOOK
- Pocketbook fits easily into medical lab coats
- Essential points are highlighted to facilitate emergency care
When one is confronted with an acute major neurologic problem, this book of moderate size may not be always immediately available ( or has been "borrowed" by someone). This pocket size booklet compiles a selection of tables and figures mainly chosen to facilitate emergency care of critically ill neurologic patients. This small booklet should cover all the essential points and hopefully is also a "survival guide" for the house staff. It may even let them shine. It includes several blank pages for note taking and allows for finding topics in a hurry. All of these features render this book an invaluable companion to The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology.
Readership: Neurologists, neurosurgeons residents in training or fellows or any newly arrived neurointensivist studying for board examinations, medical and surgical intensivists and emergency physicians. Neuroscience nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, ICU pharmacists and other allied health providers may benefit.
