The mechanical ventilation strategy has changed over years worldwide. Several international researches have been conducted to study the association of the use of mechanical ventilation with clinical outcomes. In this prospective, multicenter, cross-sectional survey, the practice of mechanical ventilation among patients with severe brain injury will be investigated in 70 intensive care units in China.
