This highly authoritative textbook is conceptually divided into three sections. Section 1 provides an accessible guide to the general principles of neurophysiology and neuropharmacology, cardiorespiratory support, management of fluids and intracranial hypertension. Section 2 outlines the use of multiple monitoring modes which are crucial to diagnosis and management. Section 3 covers the management of the major pathologies encountered during neurointensive care with an emphasis on evidence-based practice or consensus guidelines to provide a cohesive and definitive clinical resource. Authored by an international team of expert practitioners this textbook reflects world-wide practice and guidelines. This volume is published with a concurrent online version, which features access to the full content of the textbook, contains links from the references to primary research journal articles, allows full text searches, and provides access to figures and tables that can be downloaded to PowerPoint RG.

Respiratory failure is a complex disease process whereby the underlying disease and therapeutic measures interact. This book contains an extensive bibliographic review, focusing on preventive and therapeutic studies, that was methodologically standardized, with authors assessing and classifying studies according to statutes of evidence-based medicine. It considers the epidemiology and outcome of mechanical ventilation; addresses ventilator modes and utility of pulmonary mechanics monitoring for treatment; analyzes physiologic effect and patient-outcomes of pulmonary recruitment and lung protective ventilation procedures; describes complications that can be present in these patients such as ventilator-associated pneumonia and useful methods to prevent respiratory infections; covers the impact of bronchodilators, corticosteroids, and antibiotics in acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; discusses how, when, and in whom to do tracheostomy; and evaluates the use of sedation and neuromuscular blockade as well as current clinical trials in acute lung injury.
