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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Dr. Wijdicks has produced another superb and practical summary of the field, peppered with his own considerable experience. The unified tone and approach in the book is a great advantage, especially to those starting out. Experienced practitioners will find many important but controversial issues well addressed along with invaluable advice. This is a major reference work for all aspects of acute neurology."
- Allan H. Ropper, MD, Executive Vice Chair, Department of Neurology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, MA


"Dr. Wijdicks has successfully combined descriptions of the complexity of acute neurologic diagnosis with the spirit of urgent symptom-focused emergency treatment. This book is an excellent resource for every emergency department and intensive care unit. Furthermore, it is a must read for anyone studying for the neurocritical care boards."
- J. Claude Hemphill III, MD, MAS, Kenneth Rainin Chair in Neurocritical Care, Associate Professor of Neurology and Neurological Surgery, University of California, San Francisco and Director, Neurovascular and Neurocritical Care Program, Department of Neurology, San Francisco General Hospital, San Francisco, CA


I wholeheartedly recommend The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology to all those practitioners who look after acutely ill neurological patients; it is bound to become their close companion."
-- Dr Nicholas Hirsch FRCA FRCP, Consultant Neuroanaesthetist, Medical Research Council Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases, Institute of Neurology, Queen Square, London


"While the book is authoritative and well referenced, the reading experience is more akin to a curbside consult with the expert than a dry recitation of facts and figures. Content is arranged in a manner reflective of the course of clinical care, beginning with evaluation of presenting signs and symptoms (e.g., terrible headache, comatose), progressing to ommonly encountered critical care management issues and discussions of specific disorders. Illustrative figures and tables supplement the text, many now in color...This new edition belongs on the office shelf of anyone who treats patients with neurologic ergencies, where it is sure to become a well-thumbed resource." --Doody's


"The name Eelco Wijdicks is synonymous with the development of the specialty of neurocritical care and with the publication of The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology he has produced a comprehensive account of the specialty. He achieves this by combining the latest science with his wealth of personal experience and the result is a work which will appeal to neurologists, anesthesiologists, intensivists, neurosurgeons, emergency room physicians and all allied specialties working with acutely ill neurological patients." -- American Academy of Neruology


"Practical and comprehensive are probably the best words to summarise Eelco F M Wijdicks' The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology. Wijdicks' textbook comprehensively covers the specialty of emergency and critical care neurology including differential diagnoses, the meaning of technical monitoring, and differential pharmacological and procedural therapy. At the same time, this book can be used as a practical quick reference. This is as much a reference book for the neurointensivist as it is a teaching book for the young emergency doctor. Compared with the many other books on neurointensive care, the read is refreshingly smooth, which might be because this is a single-author book." -- Thorsten Steiner, The Lancet
