Controlled hyperventilation is used as a rescue for short duration (not beyond 24 h) until more definitive therapies are instituted. Osmotherapy: Various hyperosmotic agents (urea, glycerol, concentrated human proteins) have been used to ameliorate cerebral edema. However, these are no longer used due to adverse effects, short duration of action, and cost. Mannitol and Hypertonic saline are the major osmotic agent of choice in clinical practice. I.
