Primary neurological conditions and secondary neurological insults occurring in the hospital result in high mortality and morbidity in children. Critical differences in development demand that neurocritical care for children be optimally based on pediatric evidence and experience. Further, the approach to neurocritical care practices should to be tailored to a child’s neurological condition, developmental stage, and clinical presentation. These insights and increasing patient and clinician demand have led to the growth of the field of pediatric neurocritical care to improve outcomes based on best evidence and practices using a multidisciplinary care delivery model.
