In this randomized trial, the authors studied the use of cerebral autoregulation monitoring to target mean arterial pressure during CPB. The outcome of interest was postopertive delirium. The incidence of delirium was 53% in the usual care group compared to 38% in the intervention group, with a reduction in the odds of delirium of 45% (p=0.04).
