Neuromonitoring is important for patients with acute brain injury. The bedside neurologic examination is standard for neurologic monitoring; however, a clinical examination may not reliably detect subtle changes in intracranial physiology. Changes found during neurologic examinations are often late signs. The assessment of multiple physiological variables in real time can provide new clinical insights into treatment decisions. No single monitoring modality is ideal for all patients. Simultaneous assessment of cerebral hemodynamics, oxygenation, and metabolism, such as in multimodal monitoring, allows an innovative approach to individualized patient care.
