New Book: Neurocritical Care Monitoring

Neurocritical Care Monitoring

By Chad Miller, Michel Torbey

Neurocritical Care Monitoring

List Price:$95.00
ADD TO SHOPPING CART 

I commend the editors for their careful perspective on the current state of neuromonitoring. The individual chapters provide excellent overviews of specific neuromonitoring tools and paradigms.”

From the Foreword by J. Claude Hemphill III, MD, MAS, FNCS

While damage resulting from a primary injury to the brain or spine may be unavoidable, harm from secondary processes that cause further deterioration is not. This practical, clinical resource describes the latest strategies for monitoring the brain after acute injury. With a focus on individualization of treatment, the book examines the role of various monitoring techniques in limiting disability and potentiating patient recovery during the acute phase of brain injury. International experts in diagnosis and treatment of secondary injury explain in detail the current utilization, benefits, nuances, and risks for each commercially available monitoring device as well as approaches vital to the care of brain and spine injured patients. They cover foundational strategies for neuromonitoring implementation and analysis, including proper catheter placement, duration of monitoring, and treatment thresholds that indicate the need for clinical intervention. The book also addresses multimodality monitoring and common programmatic challenges, and offers guidance on how to set up a successful multimodal monitoring protocol in the ICU. Also included is a chapter on the key role of nurses in neuromonitoring and effective bedside training for troubleshooting and proper execution of treatment protocols. Numerous illustrations provide further illumination.

Key Features:

Presents state-of-the-art neuromonitoring techniques and clinical protocols for assessment and treatment

Emphasizes practical implementation for successful patient outcomes

Written by international experts at the forefront of neurocritical care monitoring

Provides a framework for practitioners who wish to individualize patient care with an emphasis upon the needs of the critically ill brain

Discusses the key role of nurses in neuromonitoring and effective bedside training for management and troubleshooting of devices

ADD TO SHOPPING CART

Product Description

Syringomyelia is a relatively rare clinical entity in which fluid-filled cavities develop within the spinal cord. Although modern imaging technologies usually permit an accurate diagnosis at an early stage, syringomyelia remains an enigmatic condition. This reference monograph provides an up-to-date account of the present state of understanding of syringomyelia and related disorders. The editors aim to document the best clinical practice in diagnosis and treatment and to provide clear guidance on how to reduce the incidence of severe outcomes. New challenges are addressed, including the appropriate management of the increasing number of apparently idiopathic syrinx cavities that are detected. In addition, controversies in current practice and directions for future research are fully discussed. Syringomelia will be an invaluable source of information for experts in the field, specialists in various related disciplines and other interested health care professionals.
