BACKGROUND New brain tissue monitoring techniques (tissue oxymetry, microdialysis) provide direct information about the state of brain oxygenation and brain metabolism in patients with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). Despite this information being limited to a small region of the brain surrounding the probes, it could be associated with such global parameters as the clinical outcome. OBJECTIVE To study the predictive value of monitoring brain oxygenation and metabolism on clinical… CONTINUE READING
