Abstract The importance of maintaining adequate cerebral perfusion pressure to prevent cerebral ischemia is a well accepted concept in the management of patients with head injury. The potentially deleterious effects of too great a perfusion pressure, however, are generally less well appreciated. The occurrence of a hyperadrenergic state after head injury, and the effects of elevated blood pressure on the injured brain are reviewed, with emphasis placed on the pathophysiologic implications of a disturbance of the blood-brain barrier and of autoregulation in promoting brain swelling and formation of edema.
