Neuro Critical Care
Patients with severe injuries or disorders of the brain and spinal cord require a level of care and experience not seen in even some of the most sophisticated conventional intensive care units. At Texas IPS, our premier neurocritical care unit specializes in treating critically ill patients with neurological diseases and conditions, pursuing all avenues of treatment to improve patient outcomes and improve quality of life.
Our physicians, trained and certified in the treatment of neurological conditions, understand the complexity of advanced neurological care, as well as the need for constant and comprehensive specialized monitoring for some of our most at-risk patients.
Common conditions treated include spinal cord injury, meningitis, coma, acute ischemic stroke, hemorrhage, cerebral edema, transverse myelitis, myasthenia gravis, encephalitis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, and more.

Although 16 million Americans have been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, it remains remarkably misunderstood, even to some people already suffering.
Untreated obstructive sleep apnea presents very real threats: it can increase your risk of high blood pressure, stroke, and heart attack, and has been linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even glaucoma.
