C108 - Case Studies in the ICU

Event Time: Monday April 24, 2017 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Topic(s): Neuro Trauma, Critical Care, and Sports Neurology
Director(s): Nicholas Silvestri MD, FAAN
Description: Neurologic complications in ICU patients often have a substantial negative impact on their outcome. Neurologists are being asked increasingly to evaluate patients in intensive care units. They are often called to assess unusual neurologic manifestations of other primary diseases, evaluate the consequences of critical care therapy, offer a prognosis, or determine brain death. Using a case-based approach, faculty will provide the core elements of modern neurologic critical care and suggested approach to the management of some of the most commonly encountered problems. Topics will include: approach to neurologic problems in the ICU, including failure to awaken after cardiac arrest; brain death; neuromuscular considerations in the ICU; difficulty-to-wean off artificial ventilation; and epilepsy, including status epilepticus. Interactions between faculty and participants will be encouraged.
Completion Message: Participants should have a comprehensive understanding of the general aspects of critical care of neurologic patients and common neurologic problems encountered in the ICU setting, be able to incorporate evidence-driven data into their recommendations, and be able to evaluate and treat common disorders in the ICU and provide an opinion regarding prognosis.
