This handbook focuses on day-to-day clinical practice and supports the first-line health care provider to anticipate problems and complications in neurosurgical anesthesia and critical care, as well as suggesting solutions for the appropriate management should difficult situations occur. Single chapters walk the reader from the problem to the solution using a structured algorithmic approach. In addition, the handbook summarizes key knowledge for the practitioner in the field. Tables and illustrations are provided for quick and easy reference. At the end of each chapter the most important elements are summarized for the reader and references for further reading are suggested.

This handbook is conceived and edited out of the strong belief that perioperative medicine is multidisciplinary and patient care is best delivered in a genuine collaborative approach. This book will be useful for all health care providers involved in the perioperative treatment of neurosurgical patients including but not limited to trainees like residents in anesthesiology and neurosurgery, critical care fellows, but also faculty in both fields, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and nurses. Nurse and nurse anesthetists will also appreciate this work and will find it handy on a daily basis in the OR, in the PACU, and in the ICU.

From the book reviews:

"This is an excellent text about the medical and surgical management of complications, prevention, mitigation for neurosurgery. ... I recommend this book to neurocritical care physicians, anesthetists, fellows, students, neurologists, & neurosurgeons. This is both a useful reference for the inexperienced and more advanced practioner." (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, November, 2014)

"Edited by two well-respected clinicians ... . This book is unique as a clinical handbook that essentially covers the major topics of neuroanesthesia in their entirety... . this is well-written, well-edited, and well-organized ... covers the diversity of perioperative complications and emergencies in neuroanesthesia and critical care. ... the impressive list of contributors ... have drawn on decades of collective experience while creating this work. ... offers good value ... a positive addition to the clinician's library." (Ryan S. Smith and Rosemary Ann Craen, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, Vol. 60, November, 2012)

"Veritable compendium ... . The contributors ... have been chosen from a wide range of centers ... . A multispecialty approach is emphasized, with representation not just from the anesthetic community ... but also from neurology, neurosurgery, radiology, internists, nursing, and pain management ... . most valuable ... . Chapters are short, concise, and well written. ... The book will not fit into a back pocket but could find a place in the drawer of the anesthetic machine." (Elizabeth A. M. Frost, Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology, Vol. 24(4), October, 2012)

"This is a handbook on the perioperative and critical care of neurosurgical patients. The purpose is to provide a quick reference for all healthcare professionals who care for neurosurgical patients, in both the perioperative and critical care setting. ... Although written for a broad audience, from students to attending physicians, it is most appropriate for nurses and beginning residents." (Daniel S. Rubin, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2012)

"A welcome arrival ... .it provides a comprehensive series of diagnostic analyses and structured algorithmic approaches in all key areas. A major strength ... is its breadth and excellent organisation into 91 short chapters ... . Many flow diagrams are provided, illustrating diagnostic protocols for an extensive set of scenarios ... . Encompassing both adult and paediatric anaesthesia, the book has considerable depth of knowledge and detail ... . I strongly recommend this handbook ... it should find its way onto the book shelves of all neuroanaesthetists ... ." (J. Fraser, Anaesthesia, 2012)
