The Child with Traumatic Brain Injury or Cerebral Palsy: A Context-Sensitive, Family-Based Approach to Development

 Critical Care, Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Child with Traumatic Brain Injury or Cerebral Palsy: A Context-Sensitive, Family-Based Approach to Development
Jan 202022
 

Families are profoundly affected by a child’s brain injury, and their participation and support play a critical role in the child’s adjustment and ongoing development. As such, today’s literature contains a growing number of studies that document the importance of the family’s role in the child’s recovery.

 

Edited by two experts from the cerebral palsy unit at the distinguished SARAH Network of Hospitals in Brasilia, Brazil, this book is designed for rehabilitation professionals and provides important guidelines for training parents and involving the family in the rehabilitation process.

 

Including 200 line figures representing SARAH’s novel neurodevelopmental exercises, as well as downloadable resources with printable versions of all neurodevelopmental exercises included in the book, as well as some additional ones, The Child with Traumatic Brain Injury or Cerebral Palsy prepares rehabilitation professionals for training the family to perform, at home, a rehabilitation program developed by an interdisciplinary team.

 

Clearly presented and easy to follow, this important work will appeal to physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, neuropsychologists, speech therapists/teachers and all professionals who care for children with cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, and developmental delay.

Atlas of EEG in Critical Care 1st Edition

 Critical Care  Comments Off on Atlas of EEG in Critical Care 1st Edition
Nov 242021
 

As the population ages, technology improves, intensive care medicine expands and neurocritical care advances, the use of EEG monitoring in the critically ill is becoming increasingly important.

This atlas is a comprehensive yet accessible introduction to the uses of EEG monitoring in the critical care setting. It includes basic EEG patterns seen in encephalopathy, both specific and non-specific, nonconvulsive seizures, periodic EEG patterns, and controversial patterns on the ictal–interictal continuum. Confusing artefacts, including ones that mimic seizures, are shown and explained, and the new standardized nomenclature for these patterns is included.

The Atlas of EEG in Critical Care explains the principles of technique and interpretation of recordings and discusses the techniques of data management, and ‘trending’ central to long-term monitoring. It demonstrates applications in multi-modal monitoring, correlating with new techniques such as microdialysis, and features superb illustrations of commonly observed neurologic events, including seizures, hemorrhagic stroke and ischaemia.

This atlas is written for practitioners, fellows and residents in critical care medicine, neurology, epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology, and is essential reading for anyone getting involved in EEG monitoring in the intensive care unit.
