BACKGROUND Microdialysis with bedside biochemical analysis was used to monitor cerebral biochemical alterations that precede and accompany increase in intracranial pressure (ICP), resulting in a complete cessation of cerebral blood flow. METHODS Seven patients, who died due to an untreatable increase in ICP, were included. The patients originate from a large, consecutive series of severely head injured patients (n: 95) monitored with intracerebral microdialysis (perfusion rate 0.3 microl/min… CONTINUE READING
