Neurosurgical Resources

  1. 1
    Hi I have just taken on the moderation for this forum - I have spent a number of years (more than I like to admit to ) working and teaching in general Intensive Care units as well as working for some time in a dedicated Neurosurgical Intensive Care. I have a certificate in Neurosurgical Nursing.

    One of the things I like to set up for the forums is a thread listing online and general resources. I am starting this thread today. Please feel free to add any resources to the thread including any good readings and texts that you have come across.

    Neurology link with a couple of articles written in Portugese - always worthwhile having links to sites with other languages.

    This site has some very nice CT pictures and x-rays along with explanations so is worth a look

    This site has some pretty gruesome real-life pictures of brain injuries but is well worth visiting - just do it before you eat

    gwenith,
    Our facility (OR) is looking at changing from stealth to brainlab for our guided imagery. Do you know any sites or info on the comparison of the two?
    Thanks for the listings of the other sites!

    Gwenith, thank you so much for taking the time to compile these resources! I'm about to begin putting together a presentation on brain injuries and their sequelae for my critical care class -- the listings you have provided are invaluable!

    Many thanks.

    thanks everyone for putting all these sites together. I just started working on a neuro floor and need all the resources I can find. Orientation was good, but I want more.
