NeuroIntensive Care: Update 2017” Summer School is designed to help intensive care residents and staff improve the management of severe neurological emergencies. The goal of this clinically-oriented week is to provide intellectual interaction with leading experts, to gather the essential information needed to treat neurological/neurosurgical patients, including traumatic brain injury, subarachnoid hemorrhage and intracranial hemorrhage. Our target audience includes staff doctors/residents working in ICUs, as well as neurosurgeons and neurologists. “NeuroIntensive Care: Update 2017” demonstrates a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach and provides a consistent set of basic knowledge, updated treatment strategies, practical examples (including hands-on simulations), to use during patient management. In a week period, the participants will be intensively exposed to lecture on topic ranging from basic concepts to monitoring systems and treatment strategies in traumatic and non traumatic neuroemergencies (traumatic brain injury, ischemic and vascular strokes, neuroinfections, …). The practical part will cover neuroradiology interpretation, the neuromonitoring at the bedside (including ICP, ptO2, qEEG,…), echography in neurocritical care.
