    Continuous cerebrovascular reactivity assessment in traumatic brain injury (TBI) has been limited by the need for invasive monitoring of either cerebral physiology or arterial blood pressure (ABP). This restricts the application of continuous measures to the acute phase of care, typically in the intensive care unit. It remains unknown if ongoing impairment of cerebrovascular reactivity occurs in the subacute and long-term phase, and if it drives ongoing morbidity in TBI. We describe an entirely non-invasive method for continuous assessment of cerebrovascular reactivity. We describe the technique for entirely non-invasive continuous assessment of cerebrovascular reactivity utilizing near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and robotic transcranial Doppler (rTCD) technology, with details provided for NIRS. Recent advances in continuous high-frequency non-invasive ABP measurement, combined with NIRS or rTCD, can be employed to derive continuous and entirely non-invasive cerebrovascular reactivity metrics. Such non-invasive measures can be obtained during any aspect of patient care post-TBI, and even during outpatient follow-up, avoiding classical intermittent techniques and costly neuroimaging based metrics obtained only at specialized centers. This combination of technology and signal analytic techniques creates avenues for future investigation of the long-term consequences of cerebrovascular reactivity, integrating high-frequency non-invasive cerebral physiology, neuroimaging, proteomics and clinical phenotype at various stages post-injury.
