Neurological Intensive Care III: Vascular Diseases
Wednesday April 26, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Neuro Trauma, Critical Care, and Sports Neurology
Alejandro Rabinstein MD, FAAN
Severe acute ischemic strokes and intracranial hemorrhages often require management in the ICU. Neurologists caring for these patients need to be prepared to identify and treat the complications that may occur in these cases. This session will review the most recent knowledge on the acute management of massive ischemic stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and intracerebral hemorrhage.
This program complements C150: Neurological Intensive Care: The Essentials and C159: Neurological Intensive Care II: From the Brain to the Muscles, but covers independent topics.
Participants should be able to discuss the indications for acute endovascular therapy and the options for management of reperfusion injury and ischemic cerebral edema; identify early and delayed complications of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage; and critically determine the best blood pressure target for treatment of hypertension after intracerebral hemorrhage.
