Optimal Hemodynamic Parameters for Brain-injured Patients in the Clinical Setting: A Narrative Review of the Evidence

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Defining optimal hemodynamic targets for brain-injured patients is a challenging undertaking. The physiological interference observed in various intracranial pathologies can have varying effects on cerebral physiology at different time points. This narrative review provides an overview of cerebral autoregulatory physiology and common misconceptions, and examines the physiological considerations and clinical evidence for determining optimal hemodynamic parameters in acutely brain-injured patients with relevance to modern neuroanesthesia and neurocritical care practice.
