Mehrnaz on Mehrnaz: I currently work as a clinical manager in critical care and emergency medicine. I also provide clinical coverage for the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in the Neurotrauma ICU and the Lung Rescue Unit. I round with the critical care team in the Neurotrauma ICU at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center where we medically manage patients with severe traumatic brain injuries and cervical spinal cord injuries. We also manage a lot of severe traumatic brain injury patients with paroxysmal sympathetic hyperactivity.
