Neuro ICU Procedure Atlas by distinguished neurosurgeons Jack Jallo and David Slottje is a visually rich, step-by-step atlas describing technical aspects of common bedside procedures performed in patients with grave neurological conditions. With contributions from an impressive group of experts, the book features 13 chapters encompassing fundamental techniques such as shunt externalization/shunt tap, lumbar puncture, lumbar drain, ICP monitor, PbTO2 and JVO2 monitors, central and arterial line, cervical traction, intubation, cricothyrotomy, chest tube, and more.

Key Highlights

Clinical pearls and troubleshooting sections for each approach
Illustrations of ventricular drain or ICP monitor placement, non-conventional ventricular drain insertion points, trajectory lines for ventricular drain insertion, and more provide detailed visual learning guides
