Thoroughly updated for its Fourth Edition, this handbook is a complete, convenient, and practical guide to perioperative management of neurosurgical patients. In a quick-reference outline format, the book provides detailed instructions on anesthetic management during all neurosurgical and neuroradiologic procedures and on intensive care of neurosurgical patients and patients with head injury. This edition covers new developments in interventional neuroradiology, treatment of cerebral and spinal cord ischemia, awake craniotomy, and therapies for children with central nervous system diseases. New material is also included on acute treatment of stroke, brain death, and management of brain-dead patients during harvest of donated organs.
