Critical brain injuries and neurological disorders can be life threatening and lead to permanent brain damage if immediate diagnosis, treatment and care are not provided to the patient. Patients who require ICU care have a diverse range of neurological diseases including brain tumors, brain aneurysms, strokes, hemorrhages in the brain, status epilepticus, head and spinal cord traumatic injury, severe nervous system infections as well as many other life- threatening neurological conditions .
The Neuro intensive care units at Citi Neuro Centre are specialized units where round the clock and personalized care is provided to patients suffering from such critical neurological conditions. Our ICUs are equipped with advanced monitoring techniques including ICP monitoring, brain oxygen monitoring, and continuous video EEG in addition to essential therapeutic and diagnostic equipment.
Facilities provided in the ICU
This care is provided by a multidisciplinary team including physicians with specialized training in neurocritical care, critical care nurses with neuroscience training, in collaboration with an extensive team of specialists from various disciplines. Furthermore, we work extensively with our colleagues in speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, respiratory therapy, and nutrition to optimize care for our patients. Constant observation and monitoring by neuro-nurses and the immediate availability of neuroimaging tools, on-call physicians, and specialized interventions allows us to immediately correct or reverse critical and worsening neurological conditions in patients.
