C78 - Therapeutic Temperature Modulation in the ICU

Event Time: Monday April 23, 2018 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Cerebrovascular Disease and Interventional Neurology, Neurohospitalist
Director(s): Stephan Mayer MD
Description: Therapeutic temperature modulation (TTM) is an essential therapy for minimizing brain injury in the ICU. Faculty will review the latest technology, data, and protocols for TTM in the treatment of hypoxic-ischemic brain injury after cardiac arrest, elevated intracranial pressure, and neurogenic fever; explain how to minimize complications from TTM; and describe the implications of TTM on prognostication after severe brain injury.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to know when TTM is indicated and when it is not, employ ICU-based protocols and algorithms for the safe and efficient application of TTM, and understand the impact of TTM on neurological recovery and prognostication.
CME Credits: 2
