Brain Death provides a practical, comprehensive, clinical resource for practitioners seeing patients with acute catastrophic neurologic disorders evolving to brain death and all its ramifications. The clinical diagnosis of brain death has tremendous implications: its main purpose is to bring closure, but it often results in organ and tissue transplantation questions which need to be addressed. This third edition introduces new research in the intensive care unit, newly unearthed historical data on important US-UK differences, a thorough discussion of US guidelines and how it is used in hospital practices, and compares guidelines used elsewhere in the world. In this incisive work, the many complexities of diagnosis and management of brain death are examined but it also illuminates cultural beliefs and bioethical problems, highlights the nature of conferences with family members, and captures several organ procurement issues. The book also includes 30 commonly asked practice problems to resolve diagnostic uncertainties and conflicts along with 10 video clips to assist in neurological evaluation. Brain Death is a treatise by the leading expert on brain death, Eelco F.M. Wijdicks. This book is a work of primary source research and includes work from recent publications by the author. It is an invaluable resource for neurologists, neurointensivists, neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists, trauma surgeons, neuroscience and intensive care nursing staff, transplantation surgeons, and organ procurement organizations.

Wijdicks is Professor of Neurology, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Chair of the Division of Critical Care Neurology, and Consultant, Neurological Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit, Saint Marys Hospital, Mayo Clinic Reviews and Awards "Dr. Wijdicks' latest edition of his book on Brain Death is outstandingly authoritative. As the undisputed world authority on the subject, Dr. Wijdicks provides a comprehensive and relatively unbiased understanding of brain death, from its important conception and legalization to modern approaches, worldwide practice and ethical and legal issues that surround the entity. It is packed with useful tables, as well as helpful video clips that illustrate key findings and educate the reader. In an era where there seems to be increasing controversy about this subject, the book is timely and definitive, and should serve as a strong reference for both clinicians and the lay public alike." -David M. Greer, MD, MA, Professor of Neurology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT " "One of the multiple requirements for successful organ donation and transplantation is a robust and comprehensive understanding and application of brain death principles. Once again Eelco Wijdicks contributes greatly to the medical community with this definitive resource on this subject." - Susan Gunderson, Chief Executive Officer, LifeSource, Minneapolis, MN "Dr. Wijdicks is the world's leading authority on brain death. He continues to advance the knowledge base while honoring the historical context of the brain death concept. This is the definitive resource for all aspects of brain death determination and its intricate relationship to organ donation. If you know very little about brain death, you should read this book. If you think you know a lot about brain death, you should still read this book. The section on clinical problems and common clinical questions is an extremely useful practical guide to managing common complexities of clinical practices in this field." - Sam D. Shemie, MD, Division ofCritical Care Medicine, Montreal Children's Hospital, McGill University Health Centre & Research Institute, Montreal, Canada
