Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
the patient should have their intracranial pressure monitored (ICP) and may need intervention in terms if decompression if his ICP remains high. there are medical interventions that can be used to try and reduce the ICP and maintain cerebral perfusion such as cooling the patient and maintaining the patients mean arterial pressure. this is a complex issue not really suitable to be discussed in this forum.
