Critical Care Neurology

(Intensive Care Neurology)

Critical or intensive care neurology refers to the care of patients with neurologic disorders who are critically ill and require management in an intensive care unit (ICU).  Most of these patients also have multiple other illnesses and have life-threatening neurologic conditions such as subarachnoid hemorrhage, Guillain-Barré (ghee-ON bar-RAY) syndrome, or recent brain surgery.  OU intensive care neurology faculty members have special training and expertise in both neurosciences and intensive care.  OU Medical Center (OUMC) has the only Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit (NSICU) in the state of Oklahoma that is registered with the Neurocritical Care Society.  The OUMC NSICU provides a much-needed service for the entire state and cares for many patients transferred from other hospitals across the state.
