Intravenous Esmolol for Intracranial Pressure Reduction After Traumatic Brain Injury
Archives of Neuroscience
Several studies have examined the possible role of beta-blockers, including esmolol, in controlling intracranial pressure (ICP). This study aimed to evaluate the effect of esmolol on ICP in patients with severe traumatic brain injury. Methods: In this case-control study, all TBI patients with ICP > 20 cmH2O, who were admitted to ICU during the study period, were included. Some patients received standard treatment plus esmolol (500 μg/kg and then 50 mg/kg/min for 24 hours), and some others justdoi:10.5812/ans.121425 fatcat:nidw2bvbufarlgrhvocckshgb4
