C237 - Emergency Neurology I: Evaluation of Coma, Meningitis, and Viral Encephalitis in the Emergency Room

Event Time: Friday April 28, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): General Neurology, Neuro Trauma, Critical Care, and Sports Neurology
Director(s): Jose Suarez MD
Description: Advances in the treatment of neurologic emergencies have increased the complexity of their initial evaluation and impacted the way neurologists deal with them. Faculty will present discussions to highlight important issues such as high level of clinical suspicion, rapid and effective diagnosis and execution of treatment plans. All presentations will emphasize importance of appropriate therapeutic decisions carried out during the first few minutes of the initial encounter to prevent further neurologic injury. In Part I of this course, faculty will discuss coma and meningitis and encephalitis. This program complements C244: Emergency Neurology II: Consultations in the General ICU, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to delineate the steps to follow to provide immediate evaluation and management of patients in coma in an organized fashion. In addition, participants should be able to recognize and initiate work up and management of patients presenting with suspected meningitis and encephalitis particularly in the current environment of emergent world pandemics.
