Maintain the following pressures within the body: This reduces the increased ICP and cerebral metabolic demands associated with increased levels of consciousness/anxiety/pain/endotracheal tube intolerance etc, Ensure the patient is disturbed as little as possible and that all interventions potentially increasing cerebral metabolic demands are grouped together, Maintain carbon dioxide levels between 35 – 40 mmHg in order to reduce the cerebral vasodilation associated with hypercapnia, By avoiding excessive cerebral vasodilation, cerebral venous blood  will be more easily displaced as it will not pool within the brain vault, Maintain partial pressures of oxygen (PaO2) ≥ 60 to ensure adequate oxygenation to aid with cerebral perfusion. The CPP needs to be greater than 50 – 60 mmHg to ensure adequate cerebral perfusion, with the normal range being approximately 60 – 150 mmHg. Brain Inj. October 24, 2014.
