BACKGROUND Intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring is a cornerstone of care for severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). Management of ICP can help ensure adequate cerebral blood flow and oxygenation. However, studies indicate that brain hypoxia may occur despite normal ICP and the relationship between ICP and brain oxygenation is poorly defined. This is particularly important for children in whom less is known about intracranial dynamics. OBJECTIVE To examine the relationship between ICP and… CONTINUE READING
