Introduction: The primary goal of intensive care after neurosurgery is to identify and prevent neurodegeneration by providing supportive activities to keep stable homeostasis. Factors such as surgery, anesthesia, or other illness-related issues influence the postoperative status of patients. In this regard, the nursing and medical staff aware of the neurosurgical procedures should plan special monitoring and follow-up period shortly after the surgery. In many neurosurgical centers, the postoperative care period may be relatively short, like limited craniotomies. However, the occurrence of cerebral edema, intracranial hemorrhage, seizures, or other life-threatening conditions prolongs the postoperative care for several days. Overall, maintaining airway safety, eliminating the need for ventilation, controlling blood circulation and fluid balance, nutrition, sedation control, and analgesics are the mainstays of care. Careful attention to each of these issues is essential to improve neurosurgical outcomes. Conclusion: Robust postoperative care management, particularly in the early stages, is essential to ensure appropriate preoperative conditions. Nurses play a crucial role in monitoring patients following neurosurgical events.
