Textbook of Neuroanaesthesia and Critical Care

Neuroanaesthesia is perhaps the branch of anaesthesia in which the expertise and competence of the anaesthetist can most significantly influence patient outcome. High quality research has driven clinical practice and led to an increasingly multimodal and multidisciplinary approach to patient care. All aspects of the modern practice of neuroanaesthesia are covered in this up-to-date, highly illustrated textbook. Aimed at the general anaesthetic department and ICU, as well as specialist neurosurgical and trauma units, this book covers the key areas needed for a firm understanding of the principles of neuroanaesthesia, such as functional anatomy, advances in bedside monitoring and imaging techniques, and then goes on to address practical issues of diagnosis and patient care. Best clinical practice is described in detail throughout, and the authors also evaluate some of the latest techniques of patient monitoring currently available, as well as looking at avenues for research that will lead to changes in practice in the future. It is an essential, one-stop review of modern neuroanaesthesia and neurocritical care for anaesthetists, intensivists and surgeons at all levels of practice.
