The authors of this title have compiled into a practical text their experiences encompassing over 20 years of work with patients in a persistent vegetative state. In addition to the partial or complete recovery of mental and neurological functions, another condition has been gaining in recognition in recent years: the state of minimal responder, which they elucidate in their book. This title seeks to bridge a gap in the specialized literature by providing neurologists, emergency physicians, physiatrists and internists, as well as therapists with new working tools. Also discussed are the relationship of the care-giving physician with the patient's family, and the planning and operating of units specialized in the treatment of patients in the persistent vegetative state.
