Drugs and Toxin-induced Neurologic Emergencies
Sunday May 5, 2019 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
General Neurology, Neurohospitalist
Sara Hocker MD, FAAN
Drugs can result in a variety of neurologic emergencies. Neurologic emergencies may result from drugs administered in the hospital and the outpatient setting, or from neurotoxic effects of environmentally significant chemical hazards, manufactured drugs, and naturally occurring compounds. Faculty will review specific complications of drug therapies encountered in the intensive care unit, drug induced movement disorders, and neuro-toxicology emergencies. These categories have significant overlap. The session is expected to be highly case based and interactive and will offer manageable approaches to toxic syndromes rather than an encyclopedic review.
Participants should be able to evaluate, diagnose, and treat neurologic emergencies resulting from drugs administered in the hospital or from neurotoxic effects of environmentally significant effects of environmentally significant chemical hazards, manufactured drugs, and naturally occurring compounds.
