Hypoxic-Ischemic Brain Injury: Movement disorders and clinical implications

Wednesday, March 27, 12:00-1:00 pm



Due to medical advances, the survival rates from major health events such as cardiac arrest, respiratory arrest, and drug overdose have grown considerably. However, survival of the initial event does not always come without consequences, one of which may include hypoxic-ischemic brain injury (HI-BI). Often the constellation of symptoms from this injury may be difficult to tease out or prioritize how to treat.

By the conclusion of this webinar participants should be able to:

1) Participants will appreciate mechanisms underlying motor, cognitive and visual impairments following hypoxic-ischemic brain injury.

2) Participants will utilize current evidence from movement disorder literature in developing a treatment plan for individuals following hypoxic-ischemic brain injury.

3) Participants will recognize the importance of transdisciplinary team in maximizing treatment and outcomes for individuals recovering from hypoxic-ischemic brain injury.
