    This is the second edition of the Guidelines for the Acute Medical Management of Severe Traumatic Brain Injury in Infants, Children, and Adolescents. The first edition was published in 2003, >8 years ago. Writing the initial guidelines was an exciting but humbling experience, because it quickly became apparent that, based on the available literature, it would be difficult to make recommendations above level III for most categories. Despite this challenge, the guidelines committee maintained its commitment to produce and evidence-based document and did not comingle consensus when crafting the recommendations. It was clear that one of the major contributions of the document would be to identify key gaps in the literature as targets for future research.
