State of the Art Clinical Evaluation of the Brain Injured Patient;
- Oxygenating the Injured Brain;
- Pupillometry;
- Brain Ultrasound;
- Essential Neurophysiology: pEEG, qEEG - in Anesthesia & ICU;
- Monitoring the peripheral nervous system and muscles in the ICU;
- Invasive ICP monitoring by Intensivists;
- BIG DATA Processing in ICU

All topics will be coupled with theory and practice, however the main objective of the course will be the «hands-on» sessions during which all the course participants will have the chance to learn how to apply all the monitoring techniques and devices.
