BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Continuous assessment of the cerebrovascular autoregulation (CVA) through use of the pressure reactivity index (PRx), a moving linear correlation coefficient between mean arterial blood pressure and intracranial pressure, has been effective in optimizing cerebral perfusion pressure (CPPopt) in traumatic brain injured (TBI) patients… CONTINUE READING
