  • tissues
  • Blood flow in the intracranial OA segment is affected by intracranial pressure, while flow in the extracranial (intraorbital) OA segment is influenced by the externally applied pressure (Pe) to the eyeball and orbital tissues. (wikipedia.org)
  • As with a sphygmomanometer, a special pressure cuff is used - in this case to compress the tissues surrounding the eyeball and also intraorbital tissues surrounding the extracranial segment of OA. (wikipedia.org)
  • Acute
  • This device and technique may be used to study the role of ICP pulsatility in intracranial hemo- and hydrodynamic processes and introduces the creation of a potential platform of a cardiac-gated system for treatment of acute and chronic low blood flow states, and diseases requiring augmentation of CSF substance clearance or delivery. (diva-portal.org)
  • The evolution of ICH is made by exceeding the critical thresholds of the ICP equivalent to each stage and the decompensation corresponds to the acute critical pressure-time fluctuation. (ad-astra.ro)
  • invention
  • The invention allows transcutaneous telemetry of the measured information intracranial pressure via a system which includes a patient implanted sensor module and a processing. (google.co.uk)
  • The invention allows transcutaneous telemetry of the measured information intracranial pressure via a system which includes a patient implanted sensor module and a processing and display module which is external of the patient and optically coupled to the sensor module via an external coupling module. (google.co.uk)
  • apparatus
  • A through-opening in the body of the device and connection means at the proximal end enables subarachnoid fluid pressures to be measured by external apparatus. (google.com)
  • blood
  • A sphygmomanometer works using a pressure balance principle - an air-filled pressure cuff wrapped around the arm compresses the brachial artery to a point where blood can no longer flow. (wikipedia.org)
  • At the pressure balance point, where pressure in the cuff equals systolic artery pressure, a 'whooshing' noise can be heard as blood flows through the artery again. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pressure balance based non-invasive blood pressure meter does not need a patient specific calibration. (wikipedia.org)
  • The reciprocal relationship between venous and arterial blood was considered the main variable in ICP and perfusion until 1848, when George Burrows, an English physician, repeated many of the exsanguination and gravitational experiments of Abercrombie and Kellie and found a reciprocal relationship between the volume of CSF and the volume of blood in the intracranial compartment.

  • The health care team will measure and monitor the person's neurological and vital signs, including temperature, pulse, breathing rate, and blood pressure. (floridahealthfinder.gov)
  • In contrast to molsidomine, this was accompanied by significant decrease in systolic peripheral blood pressure. (springer.com)
