Intensive Care for Neurological Trauma and Disease presents the progress in intensive care in terms of technological development on life-support and monitoring systems. This book discusses the ideal neurologic intensive care environment that is based on developments in other specialized care units. Organized into 24 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the problem of neurological trauma. This text then presents the accident scene management protocol for acute spinal cord injury as a standard to other forms of trauma system pre-hospital care. Other chapters consider the appropriate drugs and dosages for the management of status epilepticus in the newborn and older children. This book discusses as well the findings on the neurological examination and provides a framework for an etiological classification that has direct therapeutic implications. The final chapter deals with the clinical aspects, diagnosis, and management of neuromuscular diseases. This book is a valuable resource for clinicians and intensive care unit nurses.
