What the intensivist needs to know
Intensive care management of stroke is focused on reducing complications of reperfusion, and minimising secondary brain injury, including brain oedema and progressive stroke.
This free webinar, organised by the ESICM Neuro Intensive Care (NIC) Section, discussed diagnosis and risk factors of stroke, as well as old and new ICU therapies for its treatment.
By watching this webinar, you will broaden your understanding of:
• revascularisation and initial ICU management of stroke
• critical care of malignant middle cerebral artery infarction (MCA)
• outcome of cerebral oedema
