Event Time: Tuesday May 7, 2019 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): General Neurology, Neuro Trauma, Critical Care, and Sports Neurology, Neurohospitalist, Foundations in Clinical Neurology
Director(s): Vanja Douglas MD
Description: Neurohospitalists are frequently asked to consult on patients in the intensive care unit. Common reasons for consultation include prognosis after cardiac arrest, seizures and status epilepticus, and neuromuscular respiratory failure. In this course, faculty will discuss neuroprotection and prognostication after cardiac arrest; detection, diagnosis, and management of seizures in the intensive care unit, including an update on management of status epilepticus; and common and rare but treatable causes of neuromuscular respiratory failure.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to discuss the neuroprotective effect of targeted temperature management after cardiac arrest and prognosticate effectively in these patients; use the most up-to-date treatment algorithms for status epilepticus and describe approaches to treatment of non-convulsive status epilepticus; and diagnose both the most common causes of neuromuscular respiratory failure, as well as rare but treatable diseases such as acid maltase deficiency.
