Updates in Neurocritical Care

Call for Papers

Neurocritical care provides a clinical interface between the central nervous system and other systems. The integration of various specialties including neurosurgeons, intensivists and neurointensivists, neurologists, anesthesiologists, and critical care nurses in a neurocritical care team ensures its multidisciplinary orientation. In recent years, various new therapeutic strategies and technological innovations have been partially responsible for shaping neurocritical care into an active and rapidly expanding field of critical care medicine. In that sense, Critical Care Research and Practice is issuing a call for high-quality papers in any aspect of neurocritical care.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Neuromonitoring to guide patient-specific management (severe TBI and/or aneurysmal SAH)
  • Hemodynamic monitoring to manage organ-system conflicts (e.g., ARDS in TBI, takotsubo cardiomyopathy in SAH, neurogenic pulmonary edema, and acute kidney injury)
  • Current status and future of ICP rescue therapies such as decompressive craniectomy and hypothermia
  • Monitoring and management of neurologic complications in patients undergoing ECMO
  • Neurologic prognostication after cardiac arrest
  • Ethical considerations for end-of-life decision-making in neurocritical care
  • Critical care considerations for the patient with acute large vessel occlusion
  • Neurocritical care bioinformatics
  • Management of refractory and superrefractory status epilepticus
  • Neurocritical care for the patient with brain and/or spinal cord malignancy
  • Managing coagulopathy in traumatic brain injury and/or reversal strategies for intracranial hemorrhage related to NOACs
