The most common conditions requiring neurocritical care are intracerebral hemorrhage, aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage and ICU-encephalopathy (delirium) but the wide practice variability exist in the care these patients in the Neurocritical care units. Recent randomized clinical trials addressing key management questions have been completed in these areas. While the results of these trials were negative or inconclusive much can be learned from them. What can be learned from these trials to inform our current management strategies? how can we use the evidence from clinical trials and other standards to improve patient care and outcomes? What are the challenges and approaches to clinical research trials in the ICU population?
