Abstract
The second edition of this highly successful book includes up-to-date notes on the step-wise management of clinical emergencies encountered in everyday intensive care units (ICU). Each thoroughly revised chapter provides concise information for point-of-care treatment, making it a practical guide clinicians can refer to on a daily basis at work or while traveling, or just to expand their knowledge. Volume 1 of ICU Protocols covers topics in pulmonology, cardiology, neurology, gastroenterology, nephrology and infectious diseases. The endocrine and metobolic systems, oncology, trauma, toxicology, envenomation and thermodysregulation, obstetrics, and perioperative care are covered in the second volume of ICU Protocols. This two-volume book is a must-read for intensivists, critical care specialists, junior trainees and residents working in ICUs. It is also relevant as course material for workshops on critical care, and essential for all hospital-based libraries. “This book provides junior trainees with an introduction to the management of problems common to the critical care unit.” David J Dries, Doody’s Book Reviews, March, 2013, for the first edition of ICU Protocols.

Abstract
This book describes in detail rehabilitation protocols specific for those disorders that most frequently induce vertigo and dizziness. In particular, it highlights exercise protocols that will enable the best result to be obtained within the shortest time and with the most enduring therapeutic effect. Drawing on their personal experience, the authors describe physical exercises that will prove effective in delivering vestibular rehabilitation all over the world, regardless of the rehabilitation tools available. The protocol standardization and the reduction in instrumental rehabilitation mean that even though some individual tailoring is required, it will be possible to plan cost-effective rehabilitation within both the institutional and the private practice setting. The presented protocols cover vertigo in a wide range of conditions, including acute and chronic vestibular loss, vestibular ataxia, benign positional paroxysmal vertigo, Ménière's disease, dizziness in the elderly, whiplash-associated balance disorders, phobic postural vertigo, and autonomic vertigo. Helpful information is provided on clinical approach to vertigo and dizziness and on vestibular rehabilitation from Cawthorne-Cooksey onward. The quantification of rehabilitation outcome and the role of life-style counseling are also discussed. By documenting effective functional and therapeutic approaches and presenting guidelines for each balance disorder, Vertigo Rehabilitation Protocols will be an invaluable resource for neurologists, ENT physicians, orthopedists, and rehabilitation specialists.
