Abstract

Neurocritical care is a subspecialty of critical care medicine, dedicated to the care and the advancement of care of critically ill patients with neurosurgical or neurological diseases. Neurocritical care patients are heterogeneous, in both their disease process and the therapies they receive, however, several studies demonstrate that care of these patients in dedicated NeuroIntensive Care Units (neuroICUs) by neurointensivists, who coordinate their care is associated with reduced mortality and resource utilization. NeuroICUs foster innovation, and yet despite all the recent advances, much research needs to be undertaken in neurocritical care to better understand the disease pathophysiology and to demonstrate improved outcome with the use of goal-directed therapy based on evolving techniques and therapies.
