Continuous Infusion of Hypertonic Saline vs Standard Care and 6-Month Neurological Outcomes in Patients With Traumatic Brain Injury—Reply. jamanetwork.com In Reply We agree with Dr Chesnut that the mechanisms by which hypertonic saline solutions can alter neurological recovery remain poorly understood. The reduction in intracranial pressure and the risk of developing intracranial hypertension are not the only presumed mechanisms of action of continuous hypertonic saline infusion. Hypertonic saline is also believed to enhance cardiac output and cerebral perfusion, counteract vasospasm, and potentially limit glutamate-mediated neurotoxicity, which causes neuronal death.

Chesnut RM. (2021-10-19). Continuous Infusion of Hypertonic Saline vs Standard Care and 6-Month Neurological Outcomes in Patients With Traumatic Brain Injury. jamanetwork.com To the Editor A recent randomized clinical trial found that treatment with continuous infusion of 20% hypertonic saline did not result in improved neurological status among patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) at 6-month follow-up compared with standard care. The major benefit of hypertonic administration in TBI is control of intracranial pressure. There is little evidence suggesting that neurological outcome might be improved through other mechanisms. The study by Dr Roquilly and colleagues included patients with moderate TBI to better represent the TBI population, but the much lower incidence of clinicall…
