Protecting the brain in vulnerable infants and children with critical illness involving the brain is a central aspect of pediatric intensive care and neurocritical care. Collectively, illness-induced derangements in intracranial pressure, circulatory homeostasis, and pressure autoregulation are all fundamental in informing bedside management. Therefore, this review provides an understanding of these entities and a physiological approach to bedside care and monitoring.
