Neurocritical care

Neurocritical care is a specialised area of medicine that focuses on the comprehensive care of critically ill patients with neurological conditions. The goal of neurocritical care is to optimise brain function and prevent secondary neurological injury by closely monitoring vital signs, providing targeted therapies to manage intracranial pressure, controlling seizures, and addressing any other complications that may arise.
Preetham Neuro Centre is a renowned healthcare provider that excels at providing exceptional care for patients with critical neurological conditions through its specialised Neurocritical Care services. Preetham Neuro Centre utilises the latest medical technologies and monitoring techniques to provide the highest level of neurocritical care to their patients.

Neurocritical care process

The following are some of the steps and processes involved in neurocritical care

Pharmacological interventions

Neurocritical care may involve the use of various medications to manage symptoms and prevent further neurological damage. It may include anticonvulsants, sedatives, and medications to control blood pressure and prevent blood clots.


Rehabilitation is a critical aspect of neurocritical care, particularly for patients recovering from traumatic brain injury. It may involve physical, occupational, and speech therapy, as well as psychological support.

Rapid assessment and stabilisation

The first step in neurocritical care is the rapid assessment and stabilisation of the patient's condition. It may involve airway management, breathing support, and stabilisation of vital signs.

Intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring

Patients with traumatic brain injury or other conditions may require ICP monitoring to prevent secondary brain injury. It involves placing a small device inside the skull to measure the pressure within the brain.

Neurosurgical interventions

Some patients may require neurosurgical interventions, such as the removal of a blood clot or the repair of a skull fracture, to prevent further neurological damage.

Neurological monitoring

Continuous monitoring of brain function is a critical aspect of neurocritical care. It may include the use of electroencephalography (EEG) and cerebral blood flow monitoring.

Long-term care

For some patients, neurocritical care may involve long-term care, such as ongoing rehabilitation or management of chronic neurological conditions.
