The book sets out to review important experimental and clinical studies, with emphasis on recent publication. The text on each issue and sub-issue describes experimental and clinical studies separately. Twelve topics are covered. In the opening three chapters methodology of CBF measurements, regulations of CBF, and intracranial pressure are described. The next six chapters review inhalation anaesthetics, hyptic agents, analgesics, muscular relaxants, drugs used for control of blood pressure, and the sitting position. The last three chapters cover head injury, subarachid haemorrhage and cerebral ischaemia. This volume offers precious assistance in daily practice in neuroanaesthesia and in neurointensive care, when questions concerning therapy and management may have to be solved swiftly. It also helps researchers in neurointensive care to find relevant up-to-date references, and serves as an inspiration to all people who want to explore the field of neuroscience.
