Praise for this book:

"Chapters are clearly written and...[the] black-and-white illustrations and reproductions of cerebral radiographs are of remarkably good quality...an excellent multidisciplinary overview." - Doody's Review

From important aspects of the physical examination to imaging studies to treatment options and dosage guidelines, Decision Making in Neurocritical Care provides a solid introduction to the evidence-based management of patients in the neurological intensive care unit.
