Description: Neurologic disorders and acute brain injury in ICU patients often pose a significant clinical challenge and may have a substantial negative impact on their outcome. Neurologists are being asked increasingly to evaluate patients in intensive care units. Neurologic expertise is warranted to assess neurologic manifestations of other primary diseases, evaluate the consequences of critical care therapy, offer a prognosis, or determine brain death. Using a case-based approach, faculty will provide the core elements of modern neurologic critical care and suggested approach to the management of some of the most commonly encountered problems. Topics will include: approach to rapidly deteriorating neurologic problems in the ICU, catastrophic brain injury and brain death, management and prognostication of the post-cardiac arrest patient, seizures and status epilepticus in the ICU, traumatic brain injury and prognostication in disorders of consciousness. This course encourages active participation of participants and interactions and discussions between faculty and participants.
Completion Message: Upon completion of the course, participants will have a comprehensive understanding of commonly encountered challenges in the diagnosis and management of acute neurologic injury or disease in the critically ill patient. Participants will be able to integrate evidence-based guidelines and management recommendations into into their assessment and recommendations.
CME Credits: 3
