Submission Status: Open   |   Submission Deadline: 15 August 2023

Critical Care is calling for submissions to our Collection on Trending Neuroscience Topics in ICU Management.

About the collection

Current management of patients with stroke, traumatic brain injury, sepsis, and even general critical illness are subject to requiring therapeutics that often involve complex neurological assessment, monitoring, and interventions. In this series we have compiled several articles, each succinctly reviewing the latest information with respect to Septic-Encephalopathy, Critical Illness Weakness & Neuropathy, EEG Utility in the ICU, Ventilation Concerns & Therapeutics in TBI & Stroke, and a Clinical Algorithm for Neurological Multi-Modal Monitoring.

We hope you will enjoy reading the articles and find them applicable towards further optimizing your patient care.

  1. This study aims to determine the relationship between spinal cord perfusion pressure (SCPP) and breathing function in patients with acute cervical traumatic spinal cord injuries.

    Citation: Critical Care 2023 27:362
  2. The primary aim was to explore the association of global cerebral physiological variables including intracranial pressure (ICP), cerebrovascular reactivity (PRx), cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP), and deviati...

    Citation: Critical Care 2023 27:339
  3. Acute brain injury (ABI) covers various clinical entities that may require invasive mechanical ventilation (MV) in the intensive care unit (ICU). The goal of MV, which is to protect the lung and the brain from...

    Authors: S. Frisvold, S. Coppola, S. Ehrmann, D. Chiumello and Claude Guérin
    Citation: Critical Care 2023 27:247
  4. Sepsis is the most common cause of admission to intensive care units worldwide. Sepsis patients frequently suffer from sepsis-associated encephalopathy (SAE) reflecting acute brain dysfunction. SAE may result ...

    Citation: Critical Care 2023 27:214
  5. There is insufficient evidence to guide ventilatory targets in acute brain injury (ABI). Recent studies have shown associations between mechanical power (MP) and mortality in critical care populations. We aime...

    Citation: Critical Care 2023 27:156
  6. Lung protective ventilation (LPV) comprising low tidal volume (VT) and high positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) may compromise cerebral perfusion in acute brain injury (ABI). In patients with ABI, we inves...

Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have read our submission guidelines. Articles for this Collection should be submitted via our submission system, Snapp. During the submission process you will be asked whether you are submitting to a Collection, please select "Trending Neuroscience Topics in ICU Management" from the dropdown menu.

Articles will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process and are subject to all of the journal’s standard policies. Articles will be added to the Collection as they are published.

The Guest Editor has no competing interests with the submissions which they handle through the peer review process. The peer review of any submissions for which the Guest Editor has competing interests is handled by another Editorial Board Member who has no competing interests.
