Dementia gene rally develops gradually and patients rarely require neurocritical care. Focal lesions, such as those causing dysphasia, dyslexia, and hemianopsia, can also result in abnormal mental function (for example, because of difficulty communicating). Focal lesions are helpful when determining an anatomical diagnosis. 8 K.

Patients require assisted ventilation if P0 2 ~50 mmHg, PC0 2 ~50 mmHg, FVC <15 ml/kg body weight, and NIF ~-20mmHg. Those with impaired function of caudaL cranial nerves mayaiso need to be intubated (see Chap. 2). Cardiovascular status can be monitored with frequent blood pressure and heart rate measurements. Adequate end organ perfusion is the primary goal of resuscitation in critical care. Cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) , the difference between mean arterial pressure and intracranial pressure, should be kept ~50 mmHg (the usual lower limit of autoregulation).
