We present the results of the Romanian team for the multi-center grant “Paediatric Brain Monitoring with Information Technology (KidsBrainIT). Using IT Innovations to Improve Childhood Traumatic Brain Injury Intensive Care Management, Outcome, and Patient Safety”, acronym KidsBrainIT. Children aged 2 to 16 years who require intensive care management after sustaining traumatic severe brain injury are included in this study in three neurosurgical hospital: "Prof. Dr. N. Oblu" Clinical Emergency Hospital Iasi, "Sf. Maria" Children Clinical Emergency Hospital Iasi and "Bagdasar-Arseni" Clinical Emergency Hospital Bucharest. Continuous real-time intracranial pressure monitoring became a "gold standard" in TBI intensive-care management and ICP-lowering therapy is recommended when ICP is elevated above 20 mmHg or more. Continuous ICP and mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) monitoring allow calculation of cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) and to establish of an optimal CPP. This study aims to improve the treatments and the outcomes in severe traumatic brain injury in children.
