Objective: Monitoring of cerebral autoregulation (AR) and cerebral pressure reactivity (PRx) has previously been demonstrated to be of diagnostic and prognostic value in neurocritical care patients. Continuous long-time monitoring requires either transcranial Doppler (TCD) for assessing index of autoregulation[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
