Emergency Neurological Life Support

Welcome to the Neurocritical Care Society's Emergency Neurological Life Support Course! This course is comprised of 14 protocols and reference topics. Each protocol was designed and written by neurointensivists and emergency medicine physicians. These protocols are designed to provide the same advice an expert in neurocritical care would provide if you called the physician for a consult and asked, “what should I do in the first hour to best help this patient and hand them off to you?”. This online course will give you the relevant background to these protocols so you feel more comfortable using them in practice.
