Neurocritical Care at Johns Hopkins consists of a 24-bed unit at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and a 14-bed unit at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. Both units are state-of-art facilities for the care of critically ill patients and are equipped with bedside monitors for invasive hemodynamic monitoring, ventilator capabilities and computerized data recording systems.
The specially trained neurocritical care team of physicians and nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists and social workers provides a multidisciplinary cohesive approach to the care of patients. There is access to our highly developed neuroradiology department with sophisticated neuroimaging (CT, MRI) equipment. Interventional neuroradiologists are available at all times for emergency diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. The stroke team closely interacts with the NCCU team that has developed critical pathways for patients with ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes.
