Abstract

Definition: The medical subspecialty of neurological intensive care is devoted to the comprehensive multisystem care of the critically ill neurological patient. like other intensivists, the neurointensivist assumes the primary care role for his or her patients in the intensive care unit (icu), coordinating both the neurological and medical management of the patient. therefore, the core curriculum for neurocritical care fellowship training is evenly split between neurological and medical diseases and conditions, and fellowship training must include rotations through nonneurological icus. most uniquely, neurological intensive care is concerned with the interface between the brain and other organ systems in the setting of critical illness.
