11th Annual Neurocritical Care Conference

BIOS presented two posters at the 11th Annual Neurocritical Care Conference this past week in Philadelphia. Both projects featured data from CLEAR IVH, MISTIE II and ICES.  Of special note, Tiffany Chang’s poster titled “ICH Localization and Anatomic Subregion Involvement is Associated with Long-term Functional Outcomes” was recognized as one of 12 Distinguished Posters.

The abstracts for these projects are below. We have also provided links for downloading the posters.

New Worksheet Packets by Visit

Karin Jonczak at Abington Memorial Hospital made a wonderful suggestion to compile the post-discharge outcome assessment visit worksheets into packets. Nichol McBee kindly compiled these sets, one for Day-30, Day-90, Day-180, Day-270, and Day-365 as a zipped set of PDF forms that you can place on your desktop for quick printing.

Each set (or packet) has the Day-8 IVC removal form since the date for removal of the IVC is unspecified.  The same consideration goes for Adverse Events, Conditions/Procedures, Death, Withdrawal of Care, Resource Utilization and Final Status forms.

You can download the zip file below or from the QUICK DOWNLOADS link in the side panel.
