From the authors: “We have demonstrated that rapid changes in [intracranial pressure] lead to an attenuated dynamic [cerebral autoregulation] response, when compared with corresponding responses resulting from changes in [mean arterial blood pressure], in the early days after [acute brain injury].”

This study is highlighted as one of March’s “best of the best” as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
