This research will examine the outcomes of brain injury when intracranial pressure (ICP) and cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) are used as clinical indicators for treatment in the intensive care unit (ICU). This descriptive study will gather Glasgow Outcome Scores (GOS) for patients admitted with severe coma at two urban teaching hospitals. There are few data about whether changes in the practice environment or new guidelines for treatment of severe brain injury have had an effect on outcomes. This chart review will use data from pediatric and adult patients admitted to two urban Midwest hospitals in 1998 and 1999. Average daily ICP and CPP values will be calculated. The number of episodes of intracranial hypertension and cerebral hypoperfusion will be recorded. Outcomes will be captured with the GOS at 1, 6, and 12 months post-injury. Demographic data will be collected regarding the patient's age, gender, admitting diagnoses, and initial computerized tomography results. Descriptive summaries of demographics as well as summaries ICP, CPP, and GOS values in total and for categories of patients divided by gender and age. The effect of ICP and CPP values on GOS will be examined with a t-test.
