Neuroanaesthesia and Neurocritical Care
The Division of Neuroanaesthesia and Neurocritical Care at Artemis Agrim Institute of Neurosciences is a group of faculty with specialty training in neuroanaesthesia and neurocritical care. We are dedicated to the treatment of patients with life-threatening neurological and neurosurgical diseases, such as acute ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, subarachnoid hemorrhage, subdural hemorrhage, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, seizures and status epilepticus, meningitis/encephalitis, severe neuromuscular and neuroimmunologic diseases and patients after complex neurosurgical or neurointerventional procedures. As the same team looks after both the neuroanaesthesia and neurocritical care the continuity of care is maintained.
The 16-bed Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit at Artemis Hospital is managed collaboratively by neurointensivist, neuroanesthesiologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons to provide patients with highest quality care. A multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, physiotherapist, speech-language pathologists, nutritionists, social workers and case managers establishes individual and patient-family centered care plans. Patient management integrates cutting-edge technology like point of care ultrasound, transcranial Doppler, ICP monitoring and bedside EEG monitoring to deliver the best care to our patients.
