Book Preface

The care of children with neurocritical illness often involves multi-specialty collaboration and is guided by a steadily expanding body of data. However, many clinicians treating these children are subspecialists and often only a portion of their time can be devoted to neurocritical care. This book provides up-to-date, concise, and clinically relevant guidance to clinicians providing acute care to children with neurologic disorders. The first set of chapters presents differential diagnosis and management approaches to common overarching problems. The second set of chapters discusses the evaluation and management of specific conditions. The final chapters address important associated psychological, social, and ethical issues.

Reflecting the spectrum of specialties involved in pediatric neurocritical care, this book is co-authored by an international group of experts from the fields of critical care medicine, anesthesia, neurology, neurosurgery, neuroradiology, rehabilitation medicine, psychology, and numerous pediatric specialties. We recognize that each author has spent countless hours crafting chapters which are detailed and clear, and we are exceedingly grateful for their time and effort. Guidance and encouragement from our publisher, Beth Barry, has been invaluable in bringing this text to fruition.
