Neurocritical Care Conference 2010: Walk of Life
Date:8/18/2010

CLEVELAND -- University Hospitals Neurological Institute's Neurocritical Care Center will hold Neurocritical Care 2010: Walk of Life, a Global Conference of Neurocritical Care and Music from Oct. 7 through 9, 2010 at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU). Course director of the conference is Michael De Georgia, M.D., director of neurocritical care at University Hospitals

Neurocritical Care 2010 will include four events:

8th Annual Cleveland Neurocritical Care & Stroke Conference
Oct. 7 and 8

This two-day course features a distinguished group of world leaders to review advances in the diagnosis and management of acute stroke. Topics covered include new definitions of TIA and stroke and advances in brain imaging, including the use of diffusion-perfusion mismatch technology; the results of the recently published CREST trial and how to apply these results to individual patients; the latest updates in stroke management guidelines and what to do in specific situations when the guidelines don't seem to apply. A roundtable discussion will focus on the "Ultimate Tough Call" -- when to withdraw care and when to push forward. This will include a timely, and perhaps controversial, discussion of health care reform and the ICU. As in the past, the entire conference will have an innovative, informal, rock and roll-themed format to create an experience that is both educational and enjoyable. Attendees can either participate in person or via the internet.

3rd Annual CWRU Critical Care Bioinformatics Workshop
Oct. 9

This workshop will feature discussion on the evolution of the information management architecture used in most ICUs today and how clinical decision support tools can best be used; how complex systems analysis tools can be applied to ICU data; and the major changes that will occur in health information technology over the next decade. Attendees can either participate in person or via the Internet.

2nd Annual CWRU Transcranial Doppler (TCD) Ultrasound Workshop
Oct. 9

This event features a review of the underlying principles of TCD Sonography; the specific role of TCD monitoring in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage, vasospasm, increased ICP, and brain death; cerebrovascular reactivity testing, bubble testing, and emboli monitoring. The workshop also will cover how to document, code and bill for TCD services. Attendees can only participate live in-person.

1st Annual Cleveland Music and Medicine Symposium
Oct. 9

This symposium is open to everyone, and will cover the physiology of hearing and the underlying neurological foundations of musical perception, performance, and cognition. The musical experience and imagery and the mechanisms of how music affects us emotionally (i.e., why sad songs say so much) will be discussed. Attendees can only participate live in-person.
