A significant number of critically ill neurological and neurosurgical patients are still managed in the medical or surgical ICU by non-neurointensivists, who have a hard time appreciating the delicate needs of these patients. This dynamic guide reviews current topics facing neurocritical care providers in a straight-forward, structured, and practical way. Providing clear summaries in the management of neuro critical care conditions, this text allows for accessible, highly structured, and focused protocols for the assessment, day-to-day management, and treatment of critically ill patients in various ICU settings. This comprehensive, thorough guide to the management and treatment of neurologic and neurosurgical patients, is an excellent companion for trainees preparing for the Neurovascular Boards, Neurologists, Neurosurgeons and critical care physicians, alike. Designed by leaders in their field, this thorough guide presents practical, state-of-the-art suggestions for physicians, worldwide.

• A comprehensive guide for neurocritical care providers, requiring guidance in challenging day-to-day experiences
• Provides practical, easy-to-follow, structured, and focused protocols for the assessment, management, and treatment of neurocritically ill patients
• Tailored to the individual caregiver, with clear summaries in the management of neurocritical care conditions
