Fully updated and revised, the second edition of The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology puts a more modern approach on the practice of emergency neurological care. When most texts within the field focus on the theoretical aspects, this book concentrates on the management of neurologic conditions, recognition of deterioration of neurologic functions, neurosurgical procedures, and immediate interventions. This text also presents hard data to explain why we do what we do.

Dr. Wijdicks condenses essential information into several sections comprising of the principles in recognizing critically ill neurologic patients in the emergency department, the evaluation of symptoms indicating critical emergency, general principles of managing critically ill patients, monitoring devices and diagnostic tests, complete management of specific disorders in the neurosciences intensive care unit, postoperative neurosurgical and neurointerventional complications, management of medical complications, and end of life care.

Key Features of the New Edition include

1. Additional chapters on critical consults in surgical and medical ICUs, critical care management, and comprehensive monitoring and biomarkers to reflect new research;
2. Rich illustrations using color photos of patients and drawings of important basic concepts of mechanism of acute neurologic disease;
3. Fully updated and comprehensive reference list;
4. A pocket book of selected tables and figures covering all essential points for quick reference and as a survival guide for house staff.

This is the go-to guide for every physician, staff neurologist, neurointensivist, resident, and fellow in training with managing acutely ill neurologic patients.

Review

“Dr. Wijdicks has written and updated what is a wonderful text for anyone that touches the practice of critical care neurology. The chapters are well organized and thoughtful. The sections on paralysis and coma complement other sections such as the ones on communication and daily practice. This is a book that teaches about science and practice. The writing style is one that facilitates a deep understanding of the field for anyone at any stage of their career and practice.” –Kevin N. Sheth, MD, Chief, Division of Neurocritical Care and Emergency Neurology, Chief, Clinical Research, Department of Neurology; Director, Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit, Yale School of Medicine & Yale New Haven Hospital

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION
“While the book is authoritative and well referenced, the reading experience is more akin to a curbside consult with the expert than a dry recitation of facts and figures. Content is arranged in a manner reflective of the course of clinical care, beginning with evaluation of presenting signs and symptoms (e.g., terrible headache, comatose), progressing to commonly encountered critical care management issues and discussions of specific disorders. Illustrative figures and tables supplement the text, many now in color…This new edition belongs on the office shelf of anyone who treats patients with neurologic urgencies, where it is sure to become a well-thumbed resource.” —Doody’s Health Sciences Book Review
“The name Eelco Wijdicks is synonymous with the development of the specialty of neurocritical care and with the publication of The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology he has produced a comprehensive account of the specialty. He achieves this by combining the latest science with his wealth of personal experience and the result is a work which will appeal to neurologists, anesthesiologists, intensivists, neurosurgeons, emergency room physicians and all allied specialties working with acutely ill neurological patients.” —Neurology, American Academy of Neruology
“Practical and comprehensive are probably the best words to summarize Eelco F M Wijdicks’ The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology. Wijdicks’ textbook comprehensively covers the specialty of emergency and critical care neurology including differential diagnoses, the meaning of technical monitoring, and differential pharmacological and procedural therapy. At the same time, this book can be used as a practical quick reference. This is as much a reference book for the neurointensivist as it is a teaching book for the young emergency doctor. Compared with the many other books on neurointensive care, the read is refreshingly smooth, which might be because this is a single-author book.” —Thorsten Steiner, The Lancet
