1. balancing cerebral substrate supply to metabolic demand with drugs which reduce cerebral metabolic rate;

2. maintaining adequate fluid balance while preventing brain swelling;

4. the renewed interest in moderate hypothermia;

5. the use of specific antagonists against mediators of cerebral injury.
