Essentials of Anesthesia for Neurotrauma
Yet, there has never been a dedicated book covering all of the aspects of neurotrauma along with the various complications in the past. This book is simple to read and understand and highlights all of the practical aspects of anesthesia for patients with neurotrauma. This book aims to provide an overview of the basics of anesthesia for neurotrauma. Its target audience are trainees and fellows in neuroanesthesia and anesthesia, including physicians associated with neurosurgical and allied branches, such as neurology and neuroradiology. It will be very helpful, especially to those medical practitioners who are providing anesthesia for neurotrauma cases but who have not been formally trained in the subject.
The purpose of this book is to provide basic information on anesthesia for neurotrauma and to explain how the management of different neurotrauma cases may differ, especially those involving the head, spine, and/or polytrauma.
Straightforward issues, such as neurologic examination of such patients and understanding their CT and MRI scans, have been discussed in a simple, easy-to-understand manner. Starting with the prehospital management and resuscitation of these patients, the book covers perioperative management in great detail, including their care. Special considerations, such as pediatric, obstetric, and geriatric patients suffering neurotrauma have been dealt with separately. The less-often discussed issues, such as palliative care and rehabilitation, have also been included to make the readers aware of their importance and necessity. Another highlight is the clinical procedures section, which provides quick and easy access and can be quite helpful for all practical purposes. Thus, this book provides insight into all possible aspects of the anesthetic management of neurotrauma patients. The authors of this book are experts in their ﬁelds and we are grateful to all of the contributors who have made this work possible.
