What you'll learn

Clinical examination is the cornerstone for assessing patients with primary neurological conditions leading to intensive care unit (ICU) admission and detecting neurological disorders complicating critical illness.

It is the basis for the neuroanatomical localization of a disease process. For example, it may help identify a previously undiagnosed neurological disease, such as myasthenia gravis. Many patients admitted to ICUs have pre-existed or acquired neurological disorders which significantly affect their short-term and long-term outcomes. Like all other subjects or courses, we believe that “ultrasound-guided neurological examination” cannot be mastered by anyone who has the interest but needs the right environment and an expert speaker.
