About the Authors
  • Brain dysfunction is a major clinical problem in intensive care, with potentially debilitating long-term consequences for post-ICU patients of any age. The resulting extended length of stay in the ICU and post-discharge cognitive dysfunction are now recognized as major healthcare burdens. This concise clinical text provides intensivists and neurologists with a practical review of the pathophysiology of brain dysfunction and a thorough account of the diagnostic and therapeutic options available. Initial sections review the epidemiology, outcomes, relevant behavioral neurology and biological mechanisms of brain dysfunction. Subsequent sections evaluate the available diagnostic options and preventative and therapeutic interventions, with a final section on clinical encephalopathy syndromes encountered in the ICU. Each chapter is rich in illustrations, with an executive summary and a helpful glossary of terms. Brain Disorders in Critical Illness is a seminal reference for all physicians and neuroscientists interested in the care and outcome of severely ill patients.

    • Written and edited by scientists and clinicians at the forefront of biomedical research into the causes, prevention and management of brain dysfunction in the ICU
    • Content is presented in concise chapters, with numerous illustrations, executive summaries and a glossary of terms
    • Provides a detailed presentation of the dynamic and cutting-edge work in neuroscience and neurobiology which is unravelling the mechanisms and treatments of ICU-acquired brain dysfunction

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The chapters are concise, well written, and well organized … This very strong and well-referenced basic science text covers a broad range of topics including neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and biochemistry, and delivers a solid foundation that clinicians can translate to an increased understanding of brain dysfunction at bedside."
    Canadian Journal of Anesthesia
