Now more than three years old, but still an absolute landmark study and mandatory reading for anyone who cares for neurotrauma patients. Smallish trial but very well carried out and yielding some remarkable findings. A commonly cited article by Randy Chesnut and his group showing equipoise between an ICP-driven protocol and management determined by CT… Continue reading BEST TRIP – ICP vs. CT/clinical exam for TBI

Cochrane review of routine ICP measurement in acute coma (2015)

Routine intracranial pressure monitoring in acute coma (Cochrane 2015) A recent review of the available literature, pointing to the lack of sufficient evidence concerning the use of ICP monitoring in acute coma. Only one RCT has been conducted (see here) but this trial was questioned on the grounds of a disproportionally high mortality in both… Continue reading Cochrane review of routine ICP measurement in acute coma (2015)
