A Study Comparing Two Ways Of Treating Patients With Brain Injury


This study is enrolling men and women who have had a traumatic brain injury in order to compare outcomes when medical care is delivered based on either monitoring the pressure in the brain or monitoring both the pressure in the brain and the amount of oxygen in the brain.


There are two current strategies for providing care for people who have had a traumatic brain injury (TBI). It is unknown if measuring and treating low brain oxygen is more effective, less effective, or the same as monitoring and treating high brain pressure alone. The results of this study will help doctors discover if using both of these methods is better than using one alone in treating TBI.

What we're hoping for

We hope to improve how care is delivered to people who have suffered a traumatic brain injury.
