Integrated Monitoring in Intensive Care Head Injured Patients
Multimodality monitoring is becoming very popular in intensive care notwithstanding its high cost. The increasing amount of knowledge provided by sophisticated monitoring is worthless if it does not translate into clinical or scientific benefits. In some instance the clinical benefit is directly transferred to the patient studied, in other cases information gathered from many cases drives new insight into the understanding of an illness, and may benefit other patients in the future. In this era of boosting technology the quantity of data obtainable is rapidly increasing. As a side-effect, state of the art critical care is severely threatened by data overload.
