We conducted a retrospective cohort study in children <13 yr with traumatic brain injury (TBI) at a Level 1 pediatric trauma center to describe risk factors for intraoperative hypotension (IH) during emergent decompressive craniotomy. Between 1994 and 2004, 108 children underwent emergent decompressive craniotomy for TBI. Overall, 56 (52%) patients had IH. Independent risk factors for IH were each 10 mL estimated blood loss/kg (ARR 1.15 95% CI 1.08-1.22), each mm of computed tomography (CT… CONTINUE READING
