C244 - Emergency Neurology II: Consultations in the General ICU

Event Time: Friday April 28, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Child Neurology and Developmental Neurology, General Neurology, Neuro Trauma, Critical Care, and Sports Neurology
Director(s): Jose Suarez MD
Description: Advances in the treatment of neurological 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 II of this course, faculty will discuss stroke in the cardiac surgery patient and status epilepticus in the non-neurological ICU. This program complements C237: Emergency Neurology I: Evaluation of Coma, Meningitis and Viral Encephalitis in the Emergency Room, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to delineate the steps to follow to provide immediate evaluation and management of cardiac surgery patients experiencing acute stroke (both ischemic and hemorrhagic) in an organized fashion. In addition, participants should be able to recognize and initiate work up and management of patients presenting with status epilepticus in the general ICU particularly in light of the increase in disease severity and complex surgical procedures including solid organ transplantation.
