Accreditation Texas Heart Institute is accredited by the Accreditation Council for
Continuing Medical Education (ACCME)to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Designation Texas Heart Institute designates this live activity for a maximum of 14.25AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM
Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
The Neuroscience in Intensive Care International Symposium in America (NICIS-America) builds on a highly successful conference and networking event held annually in Paris since 2010 (www.nicis.fr). The vision of NICIS is to provide a forum that will promote transformative advances in the care and science of patients with critical neurological illness and injury.
Speakers include leading investigators in neurology, neuroscience, intensive care, neurophysiologic monitoring, neuroimaging, brain mapping, statistical modeling, predictive analytics, and clinical trial design.
This year's symposium is devoted to the theme of Coma and Consciousness in Medicine. Consciousness is an emergent property seen in complex systems. The study of human consciousness cuts across disciplines and endeavors to include clinical medicine, psychology and the cognitive neurosciences, ethics, literature and philosophy. Changes in the level of consciousness are observed across the health spectrum, in physiological phenomena such as sleep, during sedation and anesthesia, and in pathological states such as seizures, traumatic brain injury, stroke, and severe physiological or metabolic imbalances affecting neuronal function.
