New York/StuttgartDecision Making in Neurocritical Care is a concisely written and highly accessible guide to evidence-based management of patients in the neurologic intensive care unit. This softcover pocket book, published by Thieme, deals with adult neurocritical care diagnosis, evaluation and therapeutic decisions as they would arise for the typical provider, with a focus on acute neurocritical care issues and urgent management decisions.

"The aim of this book is to provide a basic overview of the new and rapidly developing subspecialty of neurocritical care in a vignette based format that is easily accessible to those unfamiliar with the field," states Dr. Jennifer A. Frontera, Departments of Neurosurgery and Neurology, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine.

This portable reference, structured in a user-friendly format, includes more than 80 tables, over 70 illustrations, as well as bulleted summaries displaying highlights from each chapter, which facilitates locating material quickly. Medication tables include information on dosages and side-effects.

Divided into two sections, the book covers the initial identification and management of specific neurological critical illnesses in the first part and emergent management needs that arise for all critically ill patients in the second half.

From important aspects of the physical examination to imaging studies to treatment options and dosage guidelines, Decision Making in Neurocritical Care is ideal for neurologists, neurosurgeons, and critical care physicians as well as healthcare professionals at all levels and is a good choice for board preparation.
