Abstract

Controlled hyperventilation has shown to be an effective method of treatment in patients with pronounced brain edema and high ICP caused by accidental or surgical damage. This treatment has to be started as early as possible after the injury to avoid secondary changes and spreading cerebral edema leading to the impact of the brain-stem and thus irreversible brain damage. If conducted consequently, controlled hyperventilation will diminish mortality rate and increase the rate of valuable recoveries in all sorts of brain injuries.
