Carolina Maciel, MD
Dr. Maciel is a neurointensivist with dedicated training in EEG monitoring in critically ill patients. Dr. Maciel received her medical degree with honors from Universidade Federal Fluminense in Brazil, and completed her Neurology residency at Weill Cornell Medical College and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. She subsequently moved to New Haven, where she underwent Neurocritical Care and ICU EEG fellowship training at Yale-New Haven Hospital.
As a native Brazilian, Dr. Maciel is fluent in Portuguese and enjoys spending time off soaking up the sunshine.
Dr. Maciel’s interests include the humbling task of predicting neurologic outcome following acute brain injury, the mechanisms related to secondary brain injury in the neurocritically ill, and the critical care management of the potential organ donor. Dr. Maciel’s research focuses on improving neuroprognostication techniques and understanding the impact of cortical electrical phenomena (seizures and cortical spreading depolarization) after acute brain injuries. Dr. Maciel is working to elucidate mechanisms responsible for transient neuronal dysfunction which could lead to delayed recovery, so that the ideal time window for neuroprognostication assessments can be reliably identified.
Dr. Maciel’s infectious enthusiasm and dedication to sharing knowledge with peers and students resulted in receiving a teaching award during residency. Examining a patient with impaired consciousness is an art that Dr. Maciel’s enjoys teaching.
