“This is a well done and thorough book on the higher level care of critically ill patients. The case studies and treatment discussions are inclusive and provide valuable information. The pharmacological and airway management information is wonderful. This is an invaluable addition for anyone working in a neuro ICU. I would highly recommend it for any advanced practice clinicians working with neurological patients.” (Cynthia Cummings, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2017)
