Neurointensive care deals with life-threatening diseases of the nervous system, which are those that involve the brain, spinal cord and nerves. Common diseases treated in neurointensive care units include strokes, ruptured aneurysms, brain and spinal cord injury from trauma, seizures, swelling of the brain, infections of the brain, brain tumors, and weakness of the muscles required to breathe. Neurological Intensive Care is one of the newest and fastest-growing specialties in medicine today. Neuro-ICUs are unique in that they bring together specially-trained physicians and nurses and advanced technology, all focused on treating life-threatening neurological diseases.
