Cerebral perfusion pressure thresholds in TBI

CPP target range: 50 – 70 mm Hg

Patients with intact pressure  auto-regulation tolerate higher target CPP

Based on:

Aggressive attempts to maintain CPP > 70 mm Hg risk pulmonary oedema, cardiac failure, ARDS (Level II evidence)

CPP < 50 mm Hg should be avoided (Level III evidence)
