This new meeting space is characterized by uniting different medical specialties -neurology, neurosurgery and neurophysiology- and by  implementing a model of nursing care based on nurse specialist.

Includes 2 extra beds to register epilepsy video-electroencephalogram, a critical area for postsurgical patients, with 5 beds, an area of neurovascular pathology for stroke critical patients with 5 beds and a room for recording the pressure of the cephalorachidian fluid. The unit is complete with 10 conventional hospital beds that will also accommodating patients with certain complexities, one of which is specially prepared for patients with head injury.

This is the first time in our hospital, and one of the first in Catalonia and Spain, which creates a comprehensive patient neurocritical care area gathering various specialties.
