Quality and Therapeutic Advances in Multimodality Neuromonitoring Following Head Injury
While primary brain damage after trauma cannot be influenced by therapy, the major goal in the treatment of severely head injured patients is to prevent secondary ischemic brain damage. It is well known that secondary ischemic insults caused by arterial hypoxia and hypocapnia, systemic hypotension, or increased intracranial pressure (ICP) destroy functional brain tissue and worsen outcome after acute brain injury .
