Event Time: Wednesday April 26, 2017 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Neuro Trauma, Critical Care, and Sports Neurology
Director(s): Alejandro Rabinstein MD, FAAN
Description: The practice of neurocritical care requires refined knowledge of brain pathophysiology and the semiological expressions of abnormal level of consciousness. The lectures in this session will provide in-depth reviews of essential topics for any neurologists caring for critically ill patients, including intracranial pressure, cerebral perfusion pressure, multimodality brain monitoring, and the assessment of coma. This program complements C159: Neurological Intensive Care II: From the Brain to the Muscles and C174: Neurological Intensive Care III: Vascular Diseases, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to discuss the factors that can affect intracranial pressure and cerebral perfusion pressure, list the indications and recognize the caveats of multimodality monitoring of cerebral function, and evaluate the clinical signs of different comatose states.
