Neurocritical Care

Neurocritical Care

Brain injuries and diseases of the nervous system can be disabling and life-threatening. But careful, thorough monitoring and innovative treatment of these problems can help ensure the best possible outcome for the patient.

The Sanford Neurocritical Care Program provides comprehensive critical care to patients with critical neurologic conditions. It’s a discipline that provides critical care for patients with a wide range of neurological disorders, including stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage, brain trauma, intracranial hemorrhage, subdural hematomas, seizures, spinal cord trauma, status epilepticus and encephalitis.

In the Neurocritical Unit, a multidisciplinary team of specially trained physicians, nurses, therapists and other professionals provides balanced, attentive care in a unique environment. They assess a patient’s vital functions, speech and eye responses every hour or more frequently, if necessary.
