Optimal care of children with neurocritical illness often involves multi-specialty collaboration, and recent years have seen a substantial expansion in the availability of data to guide acute care. This book addresses overall approaches to children with neurocritical illness and the management of specific conditions. It offers up-to-date, concise, and clinically relevant guidance to clinicians providing acute care to children with neurologic disorders. Reflecting the spectrum of specialties involved in pediatric neurocritical care, contributors are drawn from the fields of critical care medicine, neurology, neurosurgery, rehabilitation medicine, and many affiliated specialties. The chapters in this book are authored by experts in each individual topic, and co-edited by a neurologist and intensivist to ensure all topics have been fully addressed from both perspectives. The initial chapters focus on assessment and management of common conditions such as coma, headache, and elevated intracranial pressure. The middle chapters cover assessment and management of specific conditions including traumatic brain injury, demyelinating disorders, stroke subtypes, central nervous system disorders, and more. The final chapters of the book address ethical and psychological aspects of acute neurocritical illness. The complete continuum of care is discussed, from assessment, monitoring, and condition-specific management of specific problems through rehabilitation and end of life considerations.
