About the book

Cerebrospinal fluid is produced and absorbed in the central nervous system within the homeostasis. It behaves like a cushion during trauma to the brain, clearing waste products and helping circulation of certain hormones and substances. When there is imbalance between the production and absorption processes, damage to the nervous tissue is inevitable. Certain medical and surgical treatment alternatives could help in solving these conditions. Infection of cerebrospinal fluid could result in neurological problems and must be diagnosed and treated appropriately and on time. Cerebrospinal fluid also has diagnostic ABD prognostic importance in certain pathological conditions.

This book provides its readers with an in-depth coverage of how cerebrospinal fluid is produced, absorbed, what are its functions and properties, clinical problems related with cerebrospinal fluid and their solutions as well as its use as a biomarker in certain diseases. We hope this book will help nurses, medical students, resident physicians and specialist doctors to get better a insight into cerebrospinal fluid.
