Pediatric neurocritical care is a rapidly growing and evolving field. Recent advances in approaches and management of children with acquired brain injury require multidisciplinary collaboration to optimize outcomes. Physicians and allied health providers need to be aware of advances and evidence of care for critically ill children: including advances in traumatic brain injury, advances in neurodiagnostics, the role of EEG monitoring in the intensive care unit, screening for neurologic injury during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, and opportunities to support recovery after ICU and hospital discharge.
This course is designed for any provider who cares for the spectrum of pediatric neurocritical care from newborn infants through adolescence. Our speakers and audience will include first responders, emergency room providers, neurologists, neonatal, pediatric and cardiac intensivists, neurosurgeons, nurses and other allied health care professionals. This course may also be of interest to physicians who care for patients recovering from neurocritical illness in the outpatient setting, including, physiatrists, general practice providers and therapy services.
