Neurological patients can be difficult to manage, and good nursing care reduces the many complications which may occur with prolonged hospitalisation, and overall improves the quality of life of the patient. The most common causes for prolonged hospitalisation and the need for neurological nursing care, include status epilepticus/cluster seizures, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury (fibrocartilaginous embolism, intervertebral disc disease, spinal fracture/subluxation) and neuromuscular disorders (polyradiculoneuritis, myasthenia gravis with megaoesophagous). This day will mainly focus on the diseases mentioned above and how to nurse these patients.

Specific areas to be covered.
• Understanding the neurological assessment
• Seizures – What can I do?
• Nursing management of dogs and cats with
head trauma
• Acute spinal cord injury
• How to nurse patients with
neuromuscular disorders
