An actively raised cerebral perfusion pressure by vasopressors is nowadays often advocated during therapy of a post traumatic brain oedema to improve oxygenation of the brain. In this paper we argue that the arterial pressure not uncritically can be raised as the subsequent increase in hydrostatic capillary pressure may favour transcapillary filtration if… CONTINUE READING
