The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology

Eelco F. M. Wijdicks

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 936

Fully updated and revised, the second edition of The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology puts a more modern approach on the practice of emergency neurological care. When most texts within the field focus on the theoretical aspects, this book concentrates on the management of neurologic conditions, recognition of deterioration of neurologic functions, neurosurgical procedures, and immediate interventions. This text also presents hard data to explain why we do what we do. Dr. Wijdicks condenses essential information into several sections comprising of the principles in recognizing critically ill neurologic patients in the emergency department, the evaluation of symptoms indicating critical emergency, general principles of managing critically ill patients, monitoring devices and diagnostic tests, complete management of specific disorders in the neurosciences intensive care unit, postoperative neurosurgical and neurointerventional complications, management of medical complications, and end of life care. Key Features of the New Edition include 1. Additional chapters on critical consults in surgical and medical ICUs, critical care management, and comprehensive monitoring and biomarkers to reflect new research; 2. Rich illustrations using color photos of patients and drawings of important basic concepts of mechanism of acute neurologic disease; 3. Fully updated and comprehensive reference list; 4. A pocket book of selected tables and figures covering all essential points for quick reference and as a survival guide for house staff. This is the go-to guide for every physician, staff neurologist, neurointensivist, resident, and fellow in training with managing acutely ill neurologic patients.

Simulation in Acute Neurology

Sara E. Hocker, Eelco F. M. Wijdicks

editore: Elsevier Science Ltd

pagine: 150

Simulating Acute Neurology is a textbook on the execution of a simulation-based educational program in the management of acute neurologic emergencies. Simulating Acute Neurology has practical value because it contains detailed descriptions of our simulation scenarios. The foundation of this book is our experience with neurosimulation?and it has been a very good one. Part I provides an overview of the principles of simulation in medicine and examines the many unique opportunities simulation provides as an educational tool. Barriers to simulating neurologic emergencies are also discussed. Simulation allows a physician-in-training to be observed directly as he or she evaluates and manages acute neurologic disease. Part II is the core of the book. Fifteen acute neurologic emergencies, including complex neuroethical quandaries, are presented in detail, step by step, decision by decision, error after error. Each chapter in this section starts with an explanation of the essence of the discussed neuroemergency (THE PROBLEM BEFORE US), followed by a description of the scenario itself (THE PRESENTING CLINICAL PROBLEM), how scenarios can be adjusted to different types of learners (ADAPTING THE SCENARIO), and ends with a discussion of topics for feedback, which are generally focused around errors and pitfalls (DEBRIEFING). To show the flow of scenarios, we created two additional main headings: (THE IDEAL LEARNER) and (THE NOT-SO IDEAL LEARNER).

Selected Tables and Figures from the Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology

Eelco F. M. Wijdicks

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 256

When one is confronted with an acute major neurologic problem, this book of moderate size may not be always immediately available ( or has been "borrowed" by someone). This pocket size booklet compiles a selection of tables and figures mainly chosen to facilitate emergency care of critically ill neurologic patients. This small booklet should cover all the essential points and hopefully is also a "survival guide" for the house staff. It may even let them shine. It includes several blank pages for note taking and allows for finding topics in a hurry. All of these features render this book an invaluable companion to The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology.

The Comatose Patient

Eelco F. M. Wijdicks

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 608

Written by a practicing critical care neurologist, this books includes a historical overview of the concepts of consciousness and unconsciousness, principles of neurologic examination of the comatose patient including instruction of a new coma scale - the 'FOUR Score', interpretation of neuroimaging and its role in daily practice and decision making, management in the emergency room and ICU and long-term supportive care and approach to communication with family members and end-of-life decisions. It also discusses landmark legal cases and ethical problems and a chapter is devoted to the public perception of coma.

Catastrophic Neurologic Disorders in the Emergency Department

Eelco F. M. Wijdicks

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 336

This unique text takes a comprehensive approach to the care of patients with neurologic catastrophes immediately after their entry into the emergency department. Wijdicks discusses clinical evaluations, triage, and emergency procedures in detail, and covers many other topics. For this thoroughly updated second edition, he has added eight new chapters, seven of which appear in an entirely new first section on the evaluation of presenting symptoms indicating urgency. The conversational titles of these chapters echo common requests for urgent consultation (e.g. "short of breath," "can't walk or stand," "confused and febrile"). A special feature of this section is the use of algorithms and decision trees in triage - to help the physician make a very fast and yet informed decision. The remaining two sections of the book cover the evaluation and management of evolving catastrophes in the neuraxis and catastrophic neurologic disorders due to specific causes. There is a final new chapter on forensic neurology. This practical handbook will continue to be an invaluable guide for neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, emergency physicians, and their residents and fellows. The third volume in the author's trilogy on critical care neurology, it combines the images of a neuroradiology text with the practical advice of an emergency neurology manual without compromising academic rigor.

Neurocritical Care

Alejandro A. Rabinstein, Eelco F. M. Wijdicks

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 258

Patients in the neurointensive care unit pose many clinical challenges for the attending physician. Even experienced clinicians occasionally arrive at the point where diagnostic, work-up, treatment, or prognostic thinking becomes blocked. Neurocritical Care is the next volume in the "What Do I Do Now?" series and provides the clinician with specific focus and insight on interventions in acute neurologic disorders. Neurocritical care in daily practice pertains to managing deteriorating patients, treatment of complications but also end-of-life care assisting families with difficult decisions. Written with a conversational tone and using a case- based approach, Neurocritical Care emphasizes how to handle comparatively common clinical problems emergently.
