Despite the existence of guidelines endorsed by 2 prominent critical care societies, significant variability exists within this sample of institutional protocols for management of pediatric TBI.

Ultimately, the adoption of standardized national protocols for management of TBI could maximize survival and functional outcomes for these patients.
