Global Neuro Symposium—Innovations on Prehospital Care in Neurotrauma at ICRAN 2024
- 29 February 2024
- India | Jaipur
This symposium has been developed for all members of the emergency medical system, both prehospital (emergency telephone operators, paramedics, emergency vehicle drivers, first responders, firefighters, among others) and in-hospital (nursing staff, emergency physicians and trauma surgeons, neurosurgeons, intensivists, resident physicians and other emergency room care providers) who are involved in the critical phases of prehospital neurotrauma care (scene of an emergency), and who, in turn, have a strong interest in comprehensive and interdisciplinary patient care.
This event covers new trends and strategies for the prehospital management of neurotrauma patients at different resource levels but focuses on low-resource environments. The event consists of short theoretical lectures, discussion of clinical cases and practical exercises (demonstrations) that allow the student to integrate the principles of care recommended for these patients.
This symposium provides fundamental concepts, recommendations, skills, and abilities for the comprehensive care of neurotrauma patients in areas with limited resources. Special emphasis is placed on the guidelines and protocols for the management of neurotrauma, developed from the best available scientific evidence. Additionally, it discusses proposed protocols for the care of patients with brain injuries in areas with limited resources.
After the course, the participants will be able to
- Understand the pathophysiology of neurotrauma and its management through established models (protocols, guidelines)
- Understand the treatment options for neurotrauma in prehospital and emergency room care and when to apply them (airway, resuscitation, immobilization)
- Understand medical follow-up and management of neurotrauma at the scene and during transport
- Apply the principles of neurotrauma care in the emergency room
- Identify care protocols with proposals for emerging innovations in the field, identifying the interventions suggested in areas with limited resounces
