Abstract

The care of patients with traumatic brain injury can be one of the most challenging and rewarding aspects of clinical neurocritical care. This article reviews the approach to unique aspects specific to the care of this patient population. These aspects include appropriate use of sedation and analgesia, and the principles and the clinical use of intracranial monitors. Common clinical challenges encountered in these patients are also discussed, including the treatment of intracranial hypertension, temperature management, and control of sympathetic hyperactivity.
