PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review focuses on the role of various intracranial monitoring technologies in the diagnosis and therapy of traumatic brain injury injury. RECENT FINDINGS: There exist many controversial points as to the utility of different intracranial monitoring with regard to improvement of outcomes from severe traumatic brain injury. Most recent studies are confirming that the use of multiple modalities in the neurological ICU setting may offer promising results. SUMMARY: Increased adherence to guideline-based and protocol-driven neurointensive care utilizing multimodality in monitoring technology for patients with severe traumatic brain injury is likely to give clinicians increased insight into the elusive mechanisms underlying the complex pathophysiology of this disease process and may further improve outcomes in this patient population.
