BACKGROUND Brain tissue oxygenation (PbtO2)-guided management facilitates treatment of reduced PbtO2 episodes potentially conferring survival and outcome advantages in severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). To date, the nature and effectiveness of commonly used interventions in correcting compromised PbtO2 in TBI remains unclear. We sought to identify the most common interventions used in episodes of compromised PbtO2 and to analyze which were effective. METHODS A retrospective 7-year review of… CONTINUE READING
