This full-day course will examine the usefulness and implementation of a variety of advanced neurologic monitoring modalities in the intensive care unit. Indications, choice of appropriate patients, advantages, and pitfalls will be discussed. Topics will include continuous electroencephalography (EEG), including post-processing modalities such as quantitative and amplitude-integrated EEG, brain tissue oxygenation, transcranial Doppler, microdialysis, and neurosonology, including ophthalmic ultrasound, intracranial pressure monitoring, biomarkers, and neuroimaging. A pediatric and adult case-based format will be incorporated, including medical and surgical clinical scenarios in cardiac arrest, stroke, traumatic brain injury, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and status epilepticus.
