John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital is the only hospital in Arizona headed by a UCNS certified neuro-intensivist. Our Neuro Critical Care Services offer close monitoring of brain recovery during critical illness achieved by using advanced EEG, brain oxygenation, jugular venous pulse oxymetry, and continuous ICP sensors. At John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital, patients have access to advanced hypothermia and normothermia devices as well as minimally invasive cardiac function monitoring.

Neuro Critical Care focuses on the treatment of:

  • Subarachnoid hemorrhage.
  • Ischemic stroke.
  • Intracranial hemorrhage.
  • Status epilepticus.
  • Neuromuscular respiratory failure.
  • Myasthenia gravis.
  • Brain tumors.
  • Infections of the brain.

Specialized intensive care following neurological injury or a neurosurgical procedure is crucial to improving outcomes. Admission to a neurological/neurosurgical ICU led by a neuro-intensivist has been associated with:

  • Improved outcomes.
  • Lower mortality rates.
  • Shorter length of stay.
  • Lower total costs of care compared with a general ICU setting.
