In patients with severe brain injury, brain edema, elevated intracranial pressure, and cerebral ischemia are accountable for a significant morbidity and mortality. New invasive methods of monitoring attempt to foresee the physiopathological mechanisms responsible for the production of secondary brain injuries. The available methods for monitoring severely brain-injured patients, their potential usefulness, advantages, and disadvantages are reviewed.
