Anaesthesia for neurosurgical procedures requires understanding of the normal anatomy of CNS and some changes that occur in response to the presence of space occupying lesions like trauma or infection. Along with the balanced anesthesia with smooth induction and emergence detailed attention should be given in order to maintain sufficient cerebral perfusion pressure. CPP and oxygenation should be appropriate while minimizing CMRO2 to protect against ischemia.
