Answer

Patients in the advanced stages of encephalopathy require close follow-up care. Monitoring and management of the hemodynamic and renal parameters, as well as glucose, electrolytes, and acid/base status, become critical. [38, 39] Frequent neurologic evaluation for signs of elevated ICP should be conducted.
