PurposeCerebral tissue oxygenation (PbrO2) is most frequently monitored using a Licox CC1.SB system (LX, Integra Neuroscience, France) but recently a new probe—the Neurovent-PTO (NV)—was introduced by a different manufacturer (Raumedic, Germany). There are no prospective data on how these probes compare in clinical routine. We therefore compared both probes in comatose patients suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI) or subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) during dynamic changes of inspirational… 
The Oxygen Reactivity Index and Its Relation to Sensor Technology in Patients with Severe Brain Lesions
TLDR
The main result is that Licox and Raumedic showed consistent differences in ORx and CPPopt, which means that ORx values of both probes cannot be interchanged and should not be viewed as equivalent.
Evaluation of a New Multiparameter Brain Probe for Simultaneous Measurement of Brain Tissue Oxygenation, Cerebral Blood Flow, Intracranial Pressure, and Brain Temperature in a Porcine Model
TLDR
The MPBS is a promising measurement tool for multiparameter neuromonitoring but further evaluation of the device is necessary before it can reliably be used for clinical decision making.
Description of the response of a new multi-parametric brain sensor to physiological and pathophysiological challenges in the cortex of juvenile pigs.
TLDR
An experimental protocol with pre-defined end-points for O2, CO2, blood pressure and cardiac output should be standardized and reported if new sensors for multi-parametric brain monitoring are evaluated.
A method for monitoring of oxygen saturation changes in brain tissue using diffuse reflectance spectroscopy
TLDR
Estimation of SO2 in brain tissue is suggested using diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) for finding an analytical relation between measured spectra and the SO2 for different blood concentrations and the P3 diffusion approximation is used.
Brain Multimodality Monitoring: A New Tool in Neurocritical Care of Comatose Patients
TLDR
Though further research is needed to demonstrate their impact on improving clinical outcomes, their contribution to illuminate the black box of the brain in comatose patients is indisputable.
Monitoring of Brain and Systemic Oxygenation in Neurocritical Care Patients
TLDR
Parenchymal brain oxygen (PbtO2) monitoring is accurate to detect brain hypoxia, and it is recommended to titrate individual targets of cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP), ventilator parameters, and transfusion, and to manage intracranial hypertension, in combination with ICP monitoring.
Brain multimodality monitoring: an update
TLDR
BMM offers an on-line comprehensive scrutiny of the injured brain and is increasingly used for the management of SBI, and Physiological parameters derived from BMM correlate with outcome and have recently been incorporated into neurocritical care guidelines.
Invasive Neurological and Multimodality Monitoring in the NeuroICU
TLDR
This review will discuss invasive intracranial monitors, including monitors of cerebral oxygenation, metabolic monitors, and cerebral blood flow monitors such as thermal diffusion flowmetry and laser Doppler flowmetry.
Brain tissue oxygen monitoring and hyperoxic treatment in patients with traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
The pathophysiological rationale and technical modalities of brain tissue oxygen monitors, as well as its use in studies ofbrain tissue oxygen-directed therapy, are reviewed and hyperoxia as a treatment option in TBI patients is analyzed.
Rapid resolution of brain ischemic hypoxia after cerebral revascularization in moyamoya disease.
TLDR
Direct anastomosis quickly improves cerebral oxygenation, immediately reducing the risk of ischemic stroke in both pediatric and adult patients and intraoperative PtiO2 monitoring is a very reliable tool to verify the effectiveness of this revascularization procedure.

Evaluation of a Novel Brain Tissue Oxygenation Probe in an Experimental Swine Model
TLDR
It is questionable whether existing knowledge of Licox tissue oxygenation, ie, hypoxic threshold, can be directly transferred to the Neurovent-TO device, which comparably measures PbrO2 under most conditions tested compared with the Licox device.
Brain tissue oxygen monitoring: a study of in vitro accuracy and stability of Neurovent-PTO and Licox sensors
TLDR
Both NV and LX were accurate in detecting different oxygen tensions, and they did not deviate over longer recording times, however, LX needed a significantly longer time to detect changes in pO2 levels compared to NV, and LX probes showed an increased standard deviation with higher temperatures.
Clinical Evaluation of a New Multiparameter Neuromonitoring Device: Measurement of Brain Tissue Oxygen, Brain Temperature, and Intracranial Pressure
TLDR
The conclusion drawn from the study is that the new multiparameter probe evaluated does measure ICP, TBr, and ptiO2, and a new study will be necessary when the mechanical stability of the new probe has been improved.
Different Indices to Assess Cerebrovascular Autoregulation Have Different Dynamic Properties
TLDR
The authors have calculated the index of brain tissue oxygen pressure reactivity ORx from spontaneous fluctuations of cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) and the partial pressure ofbrain tissue oxygen (PbrO2) from continuous monitoring of these parameters in the first 24 h after probe insertion.
Reactivity of Brain Tissue Oxygen to Change in Cerebral Perfusion Pressure in Head Injured Patients
TLDR
The relationships between PbtO2, ORx, and CPP in head injury appear less useful than reported before for patients after subarachnoid hemorrhage.
Continuous monitoring of brain tissue PO2: a new tool to minimize the risk of ischemia caused by hyperventilation therapy.
TLDR
6 out of 22 patients with a severe head injury showed, from day 0-9, at least once a risk of (aggravating) ischemia by hyperventilation therapy, and TCD-CO2-reactivity, p(ti)O2- CO2- reactivity and decrease of paCO2 were not significantly different in both groups.
Continuous assessment of cerebrovascular autoregulation after traumatic brain injury using brain tissue oxygen pressure reactivity*
TLDR
ORx and, to a lesser extent, bPtio2 correlated with the autoregulatory marker PRx and provide additional information about the status of cerebrovascular autoreGulation after traumatic brain injury, and suggested that patients with impaired autOREgulation are at increased risk for secondary cerebral hypoxia.
Relationship of brain tissue PO2 to outcome after severe head injury.
TLDR
Analysis of the PbtO2 monitoring data suggested that the likelihood of death increased with increasing duration of time at or below a PBTO2 of 15 torr (2.0 kPa) or with the occurrence of any Pbt O2 values of < or =6 torr (< or =0.8 kPa).
Monitoring of cerebral oxygenation in patients with severe head injuries: brain tissue PO2 versus jugular vein oxygen saturation.
TLDR
Compared to SjvO2, PtiO2 is more suitable for long-term monitoring and can be used to minimize episodes of secondary cerebral maloxygenation after severe head injury and may, hopefully, improve the outcome in severely head injured patients.
Continuous Monitoring of Cerebrovascular Autoregulation After Subarachnoid Hemorrhage by Brain Tissue Oxygen Pressure Reactivity and Its Relation to Delayed Cerebral Infarction
TLDR
Imaging of PtiO2 pressure reactivity indicates impaired autoregulation in patients who develop delayed infarction after SAH, and this index may distinguish between patients who finally develop delayedinfarction and those who do not.
