The objective was to compare secondary insults, particularly decreases in jugular bulb oxyhaemoglobin saturation (SjO(2)), during intensive care in patients with "poor" and "good" outcomes 12 months after traumatic brain injury. A prospective observational study of patients' physiological data collected each minute from multimodality monitoring was carried out. Patients had duration of physiological insults quantified as a percentage of their validated monitoring time (once invalid data due to… CONTINUE READING
