Published by DemosMed
The first goal in this edition of the book remains as in the first edition - to cover the broad issues involved in the care of the spinal cord injured patient.The second goal is to provide an evaluation of spinal cord injury by experts who are deeply involved with various aspects of spinal cord injury management. Included in this new and revised edition are chapters devoted to three significant areas of development, particularly upper limb reconstruction, the use of electrical stimulation, and neuronal preservation after ischemic injury. New chapters review the state of exercise, standing, and walking systems using electrical stimulation, and the important and emerging topic of neuronal preservation after ischemic injury. The scope of this book includes:

diagnostic methods
evaluation methods
spinal cord injury
pathophysiology
medical/surgical management
rehabilitation
and issues of specialized careThis book is a compendium of otherwise difficult to assemble knowledge replete with time tested methods as well as with contemporary developments in the form of new ideas, techniques, and concepts.;Immediate Management of the Spinal Cord Injured Patient; Management of the Multiply Injured Patient; Hemodynamic Monitoring in Spinal Cord Injured Patients; Neurologic Evaluation and Neurologic Sequelae of the Spinal Cord Injured Patient; Urologic Evaluation and Management of the Spinal Cord Injured Patient; Advantages and Disadvantages of Roentgenograms in the Diagnosis of Odontoid Fractures; Body Composition and Endocrine Profile in Spinal Cord Injured Patients; Renal Insufficiency in Patients with Spinal Cord Injury; Nonoperative Management of Cervical Instability; Management of Peripheral Vascular Disease in the Spinal Cord Injured Patient; Deep Venous Thrombosis in Spinal Cord Injured Patients; Acute Abdomen in Spinal Cord Injured Patients; Surgical Stabilization in Cervical Spine Trauma; Bowel and Bladder Care of Spinal Cord Injured Patients; Spinal Cord Injury Treatment and the Anesthesiologist; The Role of Electrical Stimulation in Management of Spinal Cord Injured Patients; Surgical Management of the Upper Limb in Tetraplegia; Pressure Ulcers: Overview; Prevention and Management of Pressure Ulcers in the Spinal Cord Injured Patient: Responsibilities of the Nurse; Operative Reconstruction in the Spinal Cord Injured Patient; Nutrition in Spinal Cord Injured Patients ; Psychosocial Aspects of Spinal Cord Injury; A Changed World: Socioeconomic Problems of Spinal Cord Injured Patients; Spinal Cord Ischemic Injury: Experimental Model and Prevention; Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation; The Omentum in Spinal Cord Injury.;"The book is needed by specialists who deal with spinal cord injury patients in their daily practice...This is a must-have component of any neuroscience library." -- Divine, Inc.
