TeleNeuroICU: Expanding the Reach of Subspecialty Neurocritical Care

W. David Freeman, Ashley Rogers, Alejandro Rabinstein

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Telemedicine is a rapidly growing field of medicine due to a combination of high-speed global telecommunication systems and accessibility of small, fast mobile computing platforms with bidirectional audiovisual camera capabilities. Teleneurology is a subset of telemedicine. TeleNeuroICU, one form of teleneurology, is the practice of virtually consulting on patients in the ICU setting with neurological and neurosurgical conditions. Given the current and future shortage of neurologists and neurointensivists, there is a high demand for TeleNeuroICU services around the globe and this is expected to increase in the future. This review summarizes the state of the art around the TeleNeuroICU practice for practitioners in the field, emerging research in this area, and new technologies and integrations that enhance the value of TeleNeuroICU to health care systems.
