'Getting better' conference to address developments in neurocritical care
Date:9/4/2008

CLEVELAND -- Specialists in the field of neurocritical care will gather for the Sixth Annual Cleveland Neurocritical Care and Stroke Conference on Sept. 12 and 13 in the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel (24 Public Square, Cleveland, Ohio). The conference is hosted by University Hospitals Case Medical Center and Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.

Neurocritical care is devoted to the comprehensive care of critically ill patients with neurological conditions and diseases. The specialty has evolved during the past 20 years in parallel with the growth of critical care medicine and the stunning developments in the fields of neurology and neurosurgery. As a result, many patients are now getting better in ways that were not possible even a decade ago. The exciting progress is reflected in this year's theme, "Getting Better."

The conference will be preceded by the Vascular Neurology Board Review Course on Sept. 11. Both programs are aimed toward specialists such as neurointensivists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, critical care physicians, emergency medical physicians, internists, anesthesiologists, and nurses and other allied health professionals.

Among the subjects being presented at the conference: Medicine in warfare; treatment of stroke; measuring stroke outcomes; "tough calls" in stroke care; critical care issues; functional electrical stimulation; and stem cells for treating strokes.

The speakers for the Medicine in Warfare session on Sept. 13 are:

  • Col. Rocco Armonda, M.D., who as Commander of the 207th Neurosurgery Team participated in numerous deployments to Iraq and conducted both military and humanitarian neurosurgical care. He will talk about advances "Neurosurgical Care in Iraq."

  • Col. (Ret) Alan Moloff, D.O., M.P.H., retired from the Army after 30 years of service, who commanded the 212th M.A.S.H., U.S. Army Aeromedical Center and the Defense Medical Readiness Training Institute, among other assignments. He will speak about "Come Together: Complex Disaster Response in a Post 9/11World."

  • Col. Geoffrey Ling, M.D., Ph.D., professor and acting chair of the Department of Neurology at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS). He is a world-renowned neurointensivist whose research interests focus on brain and spinal cord injury, particularly that which is relevant to the military. He will talk about the advances in "Neurocritical Care in Iraq."

The session will be moderated by Robert Daroff, M.D., a neurologist with University Hospitals Case Medical Center, who was the first neurologist in a combat zone in Vietnam.

The conference's course director is Michael De Georgia, M.D., director of the neuro critical care center in the University Hospitals Neurological Institute. The institute is directed by Warren Selman, M.D., and co-directed by Anthony Furlan, M.D.
