Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Neurology Volume 04, Issue 07: Highlights from Miami Neuro Symposium.

The goals of this program are to improve the therapeutic management of temperature for patients with brain injury and the diagnosis and treatment of encephalopathy. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Select appropriate patients for treatment with therapeutic hypothermia.
2. Implement optimal medical and technologic procedures for cooling the brain and body.
3. Counteract shivering effectively to maximize the benefit of therapeutic hypothermia.
4. Determine whether a patient has alterations in the level or content of consciousness and make appropriate differential diagnoses for each.
5. Change medication regimens to treat encephalopathy.

The original programs were presented by Stephan A. Mayer, MD, Professor of Clinical Neurology and Neurological Surgery, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons; Director, Neurological Intensive Care Unit, New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, New York, NY, and J. Javier Provencio, MD, Assistant Professor of Neurology, Neurological Surgery, and Neurosciences, Lerner Cleveland Clinic College of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University; Assistant Director, Neurocritical Care Fellowship, Cerebrovascular Center and Neurosciences, Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH.
