Acute Neurological Symptoms and Diseases is organized by Uppsala University and will be held from May 03 - 06, 2021 at Uppsala university, Uppsala, Uppsala Lan, Sweden. Target Audience: ST doctor in internal medicine and emergency care. The level is adapted for the first and second year for doctors who do their ST education in neurology. It also covers a training need for AT doctors. Description: Many acute neurological diseases risk leading to permanent disabilities with impaired cognitive functions, vision and mobility. Being able to interpret neurological symptoms, make an adequate investigation and start treatment quickly is therefore important. Neurology is considered a difficult subject, especially diagnostic thinking. In the course, we discuss which treatment is effective for patients with common symptoms such as headaches, dizziness and disturbances of consciousness. We attach great importance to distinguishing patients who have a serious illness from those with difficult but harmless conditions. Stroke including thrombolysis is devoted to an entire day. We leave neurological ingenuity completely there, while the connection to scientific findings has an important place. Objectives: After completing the course, the participant is expected to have knowledge of and be able to report for: • How to interpret and effectively use clinical neurological examination to locate damage to the nervous system • Signs of serious cause of headache and dizziness, and treatment of less severe forms of these conditions • Management of sudden transient consciousness disorder, especially epilepsy, and status epilepticus • Strategies to identify causes of coma • Principles for initial treatment and transport of acutely neurosurgically ill patients • Investigation and treatment of acute ischemic stroke • Investigation and initiation of secondary prevention • Investigation and treatment of CNS infections Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
