This volume encompasses a variety of topics pertaining to patients with altered levels of consciousness, including valuable differences between disorders. Neurologists, researchers, and clinicians will find a comprehensive accounting of the distinctions between disorders that cause these altered states.

Neurologists who are frequently called upon for prognostication and to guide management of patients with these disorders will find invaluable information, including chapters discussing comatose states in children and pregnant women, encephalopathic patients, nutrition disorders, and vegetative and minimally conscious states. In addition, chapters devoted to philosophical backgrounds and ethical implications involving patients with impaired consciousness, are thoroughly presented. * A comprehensive reference guide that progresses from basic concepts of consciousness and neurobiology to targeted, complex topics of discussion * Invaluable information on new technological advancements that have occurred in neuroimaging, thus furthering diagnostic and treatment modalities * Philosophical and ethical implications involving the relationship between clinicians and patients with impaired levels of consciousness
