Emergency Neurological Life Support (ENLS) is a series of protocols suggesting important steps to take in the first hour of a neurological emergency. ENLS is designed to help healthcare professionals improve patient care and outcomes during the most crucial time - the critical first hours of the patient’s neurological emergency. ENLS demonstrates a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach and provides a consistent set of protocols, practical checklists, decision points, and suggested communication to use during patient management. These emergencies include Ischemic Stroke, Intracerebral Hemorrhage, Status Epilepticus, Subarachnoid Hemorrhage, Meningitis and Encephalitis, Airway Management including intubating a patient with high intracranial pressure, Traumatic Brain Injury, Traumatic Spine injury and Spinal Cord Compression. All of these protocols are available at no charge online at ENLS Protocols.

MDs, critical care nurses and other professionals who treat neurological emergencies benefit from ENLS’ in-depth presentations of 15 critical topics. CME credit is offered for the course. (See details in link below). This activity is divided into an introduction, 1 module each for each ENLS protocol (15 total) and a certification module. It will take approximately 1 hour to complete each module.
