In this review about advanced neuromonitoring for acute brain damage, we first address the theoretical aspects, which are pertinent to devise clinical trials based upon new neuromonitoring technologies, as well as the critical framework within which these new technologies need to be assessed. Hence, we review in turn both the functional and neurochemical/substrate delivery monitoring methodologies, which are currently available for use in the Neuro-Critical Care Unit, although very few of these are in widespread use. At the end of this review, we briefly discuss future options for therapies, which may be directed by online monitoring information.
