Neuroscience in Intensive Care International Symposium Conference 2017 - America - Research and Markets
DUBLIN, Nov 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Neuroscience in Intensive Care International Symposium - NICIS - AMERICA - Industry/Commercial Rate" conference to their offering.
This year's conference is devoted to the theme of Precision Medicine for Neurocritical Care and Stroke. Advances in genetics and in image-guided therapy are already leading to major changes in the
classification, management and outcomes of patients with ischemic stroke.
New management paradigms are being actively explored in the domains of acute neurological injury intracerebral haemorrhage, subarachnoid haemorrhage, anoxic-ischemic brain injury, traumatic brain injury. However, more effective predictive modelling and treatment strategies are desperately needed in these populations.
