The acclaimed protocol-based guide to neurocritical care – essential for daily practice and the boards

An immediate classic, this groundbreaking text is based on the premise that neurointensivists must be trained to handle not only the brain, but the entire body. The NeuroICU Book, Second Edition does not limit coverage to the brain and spine – it spans all organ insufficiencies and failures – along with neurologic illnesses.

Thoroughly updated to keep pace with all the advances in this emerging field, the Second Edition of The NeuroICU Book combines the latest clinical perspectives in critical care medicine, neurology, and neurosurgery. This practical, evidence-based text standardizes neurocritical care and takes you through the rationale for those standards. Filled with detailed case studies and enhanced by a question-and-answer format, the book not only builds competency in recognizing acute changes in neurological function, but also addresses all organ insufficiencies and failures, reflecting the real-life challenges in the modern neuro-ICU.

FEATURES

• Strong emphasis on clinical practicality
• Evidence-based approach leverages the scientific and controlled research that supports the key treatment methods outlined in the book
• Practical tools include algorithms, tables, illustrations, photographs, detailed references, and critical take home points
• Balanced coverage of neurologic and critical care and neurosurgery offers outstanding preparation for the neurocritical care board certification exam as well as an indispensable primer for daily clinical work
• Second Edition includes new chapters covering CNS infection, paroxysmal sympathetic hyperactivity, acute liver failure, encephalopathy and delirium, spine trauma, pediatric neurosurgery, and carotid endarterectomy and extracranial-intracranial bypass

The NeuroICU Book is also available separately for iOS on the App Store, and Android on the Play Store. For more information, go to http://bit.ly/NeuroICUBookApp

Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Stewardship in Critical Care Medicine 4th Edition

 Critical Care, Infectious Diseases, Pharmacology  Comments Off on Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Stewardship in Critical Care Medicine 4th Edition
Apr 132022
 

Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Stewardship in Critical Care Medicine 4E hasbeen fully updated and revised. The clinical diagnostic approach to common infectious disease problems in the CCU is the underlying theme in the book. Emphasized throughout is the importance of formulating an accurate early presumptive clinical syndromic diagnosis which is the basis for selecting optimal initial antimicrobial therapy in the CCU. Without an accurate presumptive clinical diagnosis, effective therapy is unlikely at best. Based on the most probable clinical diagnosis, optimal antibiotic empiric therapy, based on antimicrobial stewardship principles, minimizes resistance and antibiotic complications in the CCU.

This new edition features chapters that explain the tenets of differential diagnostic reasoning, differential diagnostic characteristics of fever patterns in the CCU. The proper interpretation of rapid diagnostic tests, in the appropriate clinical context, is included. The diagnostic importance of cardinal clinical findings, particularly when combined, in the appropriate clinical context is emphasized and remains the basis for clinical problem solving in the CCU. Uniquely, critical diagnostic physical findings in the CCU, including color atlas of diagnostic eye findings, are included as important diagnostic determinants in the CCU.

Written by infectious disease clinicians for CCU consultants, Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Stewardship in Critical Care Medicine 4E remains a useful evidence based and experience tempered key clinical resource for infectious disease problems in the CCU.

Key Features

  • Essentials of the tenets of clinical diagnostic reasoning is explained as it relates to formulating a rapid and accurate clinical syndromic diagnosis in the CCU
  • The diagnostic significance of fever patterns and their relationship to the pulse rate in the proper clinical context is explained in depth as related to the CCU setting
  • Formulating an accurate early clinical syndromic diagnosis is presented as essential since it is the basis of effective empiric antibiotic therapy in the CCU
  • How to combine key non-specific laboratory and imaging findings to increase diagnostic specificity and diagnostic probability in the CCU is presented
  • Clinical perspective on the proper interpretation of the clinical significance of rapid diagnostic test results in the CCU is included
  • A clinical approach to apparent “antibiotic failure” in the CCU is presented either due to actual antibiotic failure or seeming but unrelated non-antibiotic failure
  • Section focuses on the practical aspects of antimicrobial stewardship particularly as related to optimizing dosing effectiveness while minimizing resistance and adverse effects in the CCU
