Background: Neurocritical patients commonly present with increased intracranial pressure and are regularly treated with physiotherapy through exercise early after admission to the intensive care unit. However, the effect of exercise on intracranial pressure is minimally investigated, and there appears to be no systematic reviews or meta-analyses addressing this topic in the published literature. This study aimed to determine the effect of exercise on the intracranial pressure of neurocritical patients. Methods: Through a systematic review, literature searches on PubMed, PEDro, and CENTRAL were conducted in January 2020. The keywords used were:

BACKGROUND: In some cases of severe preeclampsia/eclampsia, brain imaging displays signs compatible with raised intracranial pressure. We aimed to estimate the incidence of raised intracranial pressure in preeclampsia using ocular ultrasonography.. METHODS: Optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) measurements were compared in 26 preeclamptic and 25 healthy pregnant women. For each optic nerve, two measurements were made (transverse plane and sagittal plane) using a 7.5 MHz ultrasound linear probe. Preeclamptic patients were followed-up until postpartum day 7.. RESULTS: Median ONSD values were significantly greater in preeclamptic patients compared with healthy pregnant women at delivery (5.4 mm (95% CI: 5.2, 5.7) vs. 4.5 mm (95% CI: 4.3, 4.8), P , 0.0001). At delivery, 5/26 (19%) of preeclamptic patients had ONSD values above 5.8 mm (value associated in the literature with 95% risk of raised intracranial pressure) whereas none of the healthy pregnant group had such high ONSD values. In the ...

Increased intracranial pressure can be due to a rise in pressure of the cerebrospinal fluid. This is the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. Increase in intracranial pressure can also be due to a rise in pressure within the brain itself. This can be caused by a mass (such as a tumor), bleeding into the brain or fluid around the brain, or swelling within the brain itself.. An increase in intracranial pressure is a serious medical problem. The pressure can damage the brain or spinal cord by pressing on important structures and by restricting blood flow into the brain.. Many conditions can increase intracranial pressure. Common causes include:. ...

The first five chapters of the thesis review the literature on intracranial pressure, the cerebral circulation and their interrelation and set the scene for the experimental work which is described in chapters 6 to 11. Intracranial pressure is now measured routinely in many clinical centres but a great deal of caution is required in interpreting the results, particularly with respect to the method of measurement, the history of any raised pressure and the values of other physiological variables such as blood pressure and cerebral blood flow. The cerebral circulation itself displays a remarkable tendency to remain constant, the fundamental concept being that there exists a basic control mechanism which acts to maintain cerebral blood flow in order to meet the metabolic requirements of the brain. The methods used to measure cerebral blood flow in the work described are metabolically inert gas clearance techniques based on the Pick principle. Hemisphere blood flow in baboons was measured by the ...
In patients with TBI, elevated intracranial pressure is often a concern due to hemorrhage (eg, epidural, subarachnoid, intraparenchymal) and brain tissue edema. The Monro-Kellie hypothesis has been used to illustrate the factors that influence intracranial pressure within the fixed volume of the skull.28 These factors include blood, cerebrospinal fluid, and brain tissue. When a mass lesion (eg, hemorrhage) elevates intracranial pressure, blood and cerebrospinal fluid are displaced to prevent intracranial pressure from rising further. Because cerebral perfusion pressure is equal to the difference between mean arterial pressure and intracranial pressure, cerebral tissue oxygenation becomes impaired as intracranial pressure continues to increase. Moreover, the brain may herniate into compartments of lower pressure to maintain intracranial pressure.29 Once these compensatory mechanisms have been exhausted, intracranial pressure rises at an exponential rate in response to small changes in ...

Patients are commonly presented to small animal clinicians with head trauma. Successful management requires an understanding of brain injury, patient stabilisation and flat-bone fracture repair.. A forceful impact to the head large enough to cause fractures may also cause primary brain injury; contusions, lacerations, intracranial haemorrhage and continued trauma from unstable skull fragments.1 Secondary brain injury is caused by continuing haemorrhage, oedema, and activation of biochemical pathways which perpetuate the primary brain injury and increase intracranial pressure. Hypotension and hypoxaemia further encourage this perpetuation of inflammatory events, the result being a rise in intracranial pressure.1 Clinicians have the opportunity to exert a therapeutic effect on secondary brain injury.. In the normal patient, two processes occur to prevent inappropriate intracranial pressure.1 Pressure autoregulation keeps intracranial pressure constant despite changes in blood pressure. Chemical ...
The time pattern of intracranial pressure (ICP) in response to typical clinical tests (i.e., bolus injection and bolus withdrawal of 1 to 4 mL of saline in the craniospinal space) was studied in 18 patients with acute brain damage by means of a mathematical model. The model includes the main biomechanical factors assumed to affect intracranial pressure, particularly cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) dynamics, intracranial compliance, and cerebral hemodynamics. Best fitting between model simulation curves and clinical tracings was achieved using in Powell minimization algorithm and a least- square criterion function. The simulation results demonstrate that, in most patients, the ICP time pattern cannot be explained merely on the basis of CSF dynamics but also requires consideration of the contribution of cerebral hemodynamics and blood volume alterations. In particular, only in a few patients (about 40% of total) the ICP monotonically returns toward baseline following the clinical maneuver. In most of ...
The management of raised intracranial pressure is undergoing rapid change. The choice of medical treatments to reduce intracranial pressure varies between institutions and regions of the world. The mainstay of therapy, however, continues to be the infusion of a hyperosmolar solution to achieve an osmotic gradient to force the exit of water from the brain. This review introduces the basic concepts of raised intracranial pressure, summarises several recent studies that have challenged dogma in the field, and provides practical advice on hyperosmolar treatment, based on personal experience and a critical reading of the literature.. ...
A method and apparatus for non-invasively estimating the intracranial pressures of a subject is provided. A sensory stimulus is directed towards the subject thereby generating electrical brain activity. A peak in the second negative-going wave of the brain activity is identified and the latency of such peak is measured. The intracranial pressure of the subject is estimated by comparing value of the latency with known latency/intracranial pressure correlations.

Measuring lumbar puncture opening pressure is common practice during spontaneous CSF leak and intracranial hypertension investigation and diagnosis. Less common, but still widely used at some institutions is the practice of looking out for low intracranial pressure via ICP monitoring.. Both confirmed and potential CSF leak sufferers often query how pressure is measured, the differences between opening pressure and intracranial pressure recording, and what ranges constitute normal, low and high pressure. In response, weve produced a CSF leak-specific factsheet.. Our updated factsheet explores the key ins/outs of measuring opening pressure by lumbar puncture and provides details on the common pressure ranges in tabulated form. Also covered are the basics of CSF production and absorption.. We have updated the factsheet in response to feedback and also referenced a number of new and additional journal articles, including two important publications which confirm that normal opening pressure is not ...
Elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) is seen in head trauma, hydrocephalus, intracranial tumors, hepatic encephalopathy, and cerebral edema. Intractable elevated ICP can lead to death or devastating neurological damage either by reducing cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) and causing cerebral ischemia or by compressing and causing herniation...
In adults, the cranial vault represents a closed, noncompliant structure. Two important exceptions exist in which intracranial compliance is increased. These are at the foramen magnum and craniectomy sites. Craniectomy refers to surgical bone removal to treat refractory intracranial hypertension or as a by-product of neurosurgical decompression for an alternate indication. This removal of bone leaves a palpable, soft, cranial defect covered only by dura, galea, and skin. The brain is distinguished from other organs by the unique challenge of monitoring brain function and intracranial dynamics in a structure enclosed by a bony vault. The noncompliant surrounding bone of the calvarium does not allow for significant volume change of the brain or adjustment of intracranial pressure (ICP) (Fig. 86-1A). As a result, the pressure within the fixed space of the calvarium must be carefully regulated by many mechanisms in order to be maintained within a physiologic range. Disruption of these mechanisms ...

N2 - Introduction: The development of a technique that enables brain temperature to be immediately and selectively reduced without affecting systemic circulation is needed to perform resuscitative hypothermia in a clinical situation. Since bilateral common carotid arteries exist at about 1 centimeter (C) from the pharynx, cooling the pharyngeal region decreases the carotid arterial temperature first and subsequently decreases brain temperature before lowering cardiac temperature. The present study was designed to evaluate the effects of pharyngeal cooling on brain temperature, systemic temperature, intracranial pressure and extracellular glutamate concentration during resuscitation in monkeys. Methods: ...
Clinical measurement of intracranial pressure (ICP) is often performed to aid diagnosis of hydrocephalus. This review discusses analysis of ICP and its components for the investigation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) dynamics. The role of pulse, slow and respiratory waveforms of ICP in diagnosis, prognostication and management of hydrocephalus is presented. Two methods related to ICP measurement are listed: an overnight monitoring of ICP and a constant-rate infusion study. Due to the dynamic nature of ICP, a snapshot manometric measurement of ICP is of limited use as it might lead to unreliable results. Therefore, monitoring of ICP over longer time combined with analysis of its waveforms provides more detailed information on the state of pressure-volume compensation. The infusion study implements ICP signal processing and CSF circulation model analysis in order to assess the cerebrospinal dynamics variables, such as CSF outflow resistance, compliance of CSF space, pressure amplitude, reference pressure,
There are several means of getting information about intracranial pressure. These are only two of the methods in common use: the external ventriular drain and the parenchymal pressure transducer. The alternative, also presented here, is a clinical assessment. This chapter answers the question as to how one might monitor intracranial pressure, rather than asking whether one should (the indications for ICP monitoring being the subject of another chapter).
a. In case of intracranial pressure, placement of intracranial pressure monitors (The intracranial pressure (ICP) is monitored and ICP also can be lowered by draining cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) out through the catheter) by non-neurosurgeons: Excellent outcomes can be achieved. Placement of ICP monitors may be performed safely by both neurosurgeons and non-neurosurgeons. This procedure should thus be considered a core skill for trauma surgeons and surgical residents alike, thereby allowing initiation of prompt medical treatment in both rural areas and trauma centers with inadequate neurosurgeon or fellow coverage, according to the study by Department of Trauma Services, Via Christi Hospital on Saint Francis (J.M.H.(22 ...
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury to the brain caused by a head injury (trauma to the head). Depending on the part of the brain that is injured, it can cause changes in behaviour, physical abilities or even personality. There is a high risk of developing complications of severe brain injury such as a buildup of pressure inside the skull (increased intracranial pressure). This can starve parts of the brain of oxygen (cerebral ischaemia), leading to brain damage or even death. To prevent this, increases in intracranial pressure must be detected early. This is usually done by inserting a special tube (catheter) into the brain via a hole that is drilled in the skull or using a CT scan. Recently, ultrasound examination of the eye nerve has been found to be a useful and easy bedside tool to detect the increased intracranial pressure by measuring the diameter of the sheath around eye nerve. The aim of this study is to find out whether this technique is as accurate at measuring the pressure ...
Normal intracranial pressure (ICP) is between 5 and 15 mmHg in supine subjects. Intracranial hypertension (ICP >20 mmHg) is common in many central nervous system diseases and in fatal cases is often the immediate cause of death.Aetiology and pathogenesis-increases in intracranial volume and hence-given the rigid skull-ICP may be the consequence of (1) brain oedema, (2) increased cerebral blood volume, (3) hydrocephalus, and (4) space-occupying lesions. Brain perfusion depends on the difference between mean arterial pressure and ICP, termed cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP). The normal brain autoregulates cerebral blood flow down to a lower limit of CPP of about 50 mmHg in healthy subjects, and perhaps 60 to 70 mmHg in disease. CPP reduction to below these values results in cerebral ischaemia....

We thank Miller et al. for their interest in the results of our assessment of noninvasive ICP measurement technology. This method is accurate and sensitivity and specificity are much higher compared with other approaches.1,6,7. Blood flow in both segments of the OA depends on ICP, ambulatory blood pressure, heart rate, intraocular pressure, intraorbital pressure, and other factors.1 The benefit of our method is in the equilibration of ICP with Pe. The balance ICP = Pe is not dependent on influential factors. OA blood flow velocities could be very different in different patients1 but the balance ICP = Pe does not depend on the OA blood flow velocity values. As a result, our method does not need a patient-specific calibration. All "correlation-based" noninvasive ICP measurement approaches cannot be used for absolute ICP value measurements because they need patient-specific calibration, which is impossible.. Our 2-depth transcranial Doppler technology complies with all safety standards. The maximum ...
Critically elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) represents the important cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with intracranial pathology, but
BACKGROUND: The clinical advantage of telemetric intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring has previously been limited by issues with inaccuracy and zero-drift. Today, 2 comparable telemetric ICP monitoring systems are available performing adequately in these parameters. The objective of this study is to identify appropriate uses of each system.. METHODS: The 2 telemetric ICP monitoring systems from Raumedic (implant: Neurovent-P-tel) and Miethke (implant: Sensor Reservoir) are compared in terms of fundamental differences, sensor survival, monitoring possibilities, complications, and cost/benefit. Two illustrative cases are presented highlighting clinical advantages and disadvantages of each system.. RESULTS: Both systems provide transdermal (telemetric) ICP measurements through external application of a reader unit cabled to a portable data sampler. Thereby, they allow several ICP monitoring sessions without multiple surgical insertions of a cabled ICP sensor. The Miethke implant has a high ...
OBJECTIVES. The aim of this work was to compare the effects of sevoflurane and desflurane upon the intracranial pressure, cerebral perfusion pressure and haemodynamic variables in normocapneic dogs, maintained under mechanical ventilation.. MATERIALS. Twelve healthy, adult, mongrel dogs were used. The animals were randomly separated into two groups of 06 animals each (GSEVO and GDES). The anesthesia was induced in all animals through intravenous administration of propofol (8 mg/kg). The dogs were intubated and received rocuronium (0.6 mg/kg), intravenously. The neuromuscular blockade was maintained during all the experimental period through continuous infusion of rocuronium (0.6 mg/kg/h). Mechanical ventilation was used to maintain the capnometry constant at 35 mmHg. The body temperature was also maintained within the physiological rate for the species.. The maintenance of anesthesia was done with sevoflurane (1.5 MAC) in GSEVO and desflurane (1.5 MAC) in GDES. The administration of the volatile ...
Authors: Kashif FM, Verghese GC, Novak V, Czosnyka M, Heldt T.. Intracranial pressure (ICP) is affected in many neurological conditions. Clinical measurement of pressure on the brain currently requires placing a probe in the cerebrospinal fluid compartment, the brain tissue, or other intracranial space. This invasiveness limits the measurement to critically ill patients. Because ICP is also clinically important in conditions ranging from brain tumors and hydrocephalus to concussions, noninvasive determination of ICP would be desirable. Our model-based approach to continuous estimation and tracking of ICP uses routinely obtainable time-synchronized, noninvasive (or minimally invasive) measurements of peripheral arterial blood pressure and blood flow velocity in the middle cerebral artery (MCA), both at intra-heartbeat resolution. A physiological model of cerebrovascular dynamics provides mathematical constraints that relate the measured waveforms to ICP. Our algorithm produces patient-specific ...
RESULTS: Perihematoma cerebral blood flow (38.7 ± 11.9 mL/100 g/min) was reduced relative to contralateral regions (44.1 ± 11.1 mL/100 g/min, P = .001), but cerebral perfusion pressure was not (14.4 ± 4.6 minutes−1 versus 14.3 ± 4.8 minutes−1, P = .93). Perihematoma cerebrovascular resistance (0.34 ± 0.11 g/mL) was higher than that in the contralateral region (0.30 ± 0.10 g/mL, P , .001). Ipsilateral and contralateral cerebral perfusion pressure in the external (15.0 ± 4.6 versus 15.6 ± 5.3 minutes−1, P = .15) and internal (15.0 ± 4.8 versus 15.0 ± 4.8 minutes−1, P = .90) borderzone regions were all similar. Borderzone cerebral perfusion pressure was similar to mean global cerebral perfusion pressure (14.7 ± 4.7 minutes−1, P ≥ .29). Perihematoma cerebral perfusion pressure did not differ between blood pressure treatment groups (13.9 ± 5.5 minutes−1 versus 14.8 ± 3.4 minutes−1, P = .38) or vary with mean arterial pressure (r = −0.08, [−0.10, 0.05]). ...
The pulsatile energy transmission between arterial blood pressure (BP) and intracranial pressure (ICP) is affected by cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and brain tissue. Studies in dogs have shown that the transfer function (TF) between BP and ICP shows damp
Intracranial pressure (ICP) is an important component of the fluid dynamic environment of the brain and plays a central role with regards to the maintenance of normal cerebral blood flow and neuronal function. However, many regulatory mechanisms controlling the ICP are still poorly understood. One major gap in knowledge in this regard is the mechanism behind the postural/gravitational control of ICP. This is partly due to the fact that most ICP investigations are performed with the patients in a supine or recumbent position. Since most people spend 16 hours a day in an upright position, understanding these mechanics is highly motivated. Also spurring research on this topic is the increasing number of reports of the spaceflight-associated neuro-ocular syndrome (SANS) found in astronauts after prolonged exposure to weightlessness (i.e. microgravity), where evidence suggests that a disrupted balance between ICP and intraocular pressure (IOP) may be an underlying cause. Understanding how ICP is ...
A brain injury or some other health problem can cause growing pressure inside your skull. This dangerous condition is called increased intracranial pressure (ICP). It can lead to a headache. It can also further injure your brain or spinal cord.

A system for measuring and converting to an observer intelligible form an internal physiological parameter of a medical patient. 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. A sensor within the implanted module transduces the measured information and a near infrared (NIR) emitter transmits this telemetry information when interrogated by the complementary external coupling module. Power for the sensor module is derived inductively through rectification of a transcutaneously-applied high-frequency alternating electromagnetic field which is generated by a power source within the external coupling module, in concept much like a conventional electrical transformer. A computer within the processing and display module calculates the parameter value from the
Under which circumstances must one be so interested in intracranial pressure, so as to introduce things into the patients skull? This question, in a variety of permutations, is a College favourite. For instance, it has recently appeared in Question 27 of the first paper of 2014, less recently in Question 16 of the first paper of 2009, and Question 27.2 from the first paper of 2008. The advantages and disadvantages of various ICP monitoring techniques are discussed elsewhere; this is the chapter which debates the very need for something like this.
Primary care doctors may sometimes spot early symptoms of increased intracranial pressure such as headache, seizures, or other nervous system
A significant reason for death and long-term disability due to head injuries and pathologic conditions is an elevation in the intracranial pressure (ICP) due to vascular compromise and secondary sequelae causing edema. ICP measurements before and after injury in a completely closed-head environment have a significant research value, particularly in the acute postinjury period. With current technology, a tethered fiberoptic probe penetrates the brain and therefore can only remain implanted for relatively short time periods. Use of the probe also can cause complications such as infection and hemorrhage and prohibit immediate (at the time of injury) and long-term measurements of ICP. A small, fully embedded, wireless ICP device may simplify clinical management and research protocols by offering a means for semi-invasive and long-term ICP measurement following brain injury. In this chapter, a new digital wireless ICP (DICP) device is described. The dynamic ICP measurement performances of both the ...

Object. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of two different treatment protocols on physiological characteristics and outcome in patients with brain trauma. One protocol was primarily oriented toward reducing intracranial pressure (ICP), and the other primarily on maintaining cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP).. Methods. A series of 67 patients in Uppsala were treated according to a protocol aimed at keeping ICP less than 20 mm Hg and, as a secondary target, CPP at approximately 60 mm Hg. Another series of 64 patients in Edinburgh were treated according to a protocol aimed primarily at maintaining CPP greater than 70 mm Hg and, secondarily, ICP less than 25 mm Hg for the first 24 hours and 30 mm Hg subsequently.. The ICP and CPP insults were assessed as the percentage of monitoring time that ICP was greater than or equal to 20 mm Hg and CPP less than 60 mm Hg, respectively. Pressure reactivity in each patient was assessed based on the slope of the regression line relating mean ...
The CHARIS GUI provides an integrated platform for evaluating data necessary for developing predictive models of intracranial hyptertension (IH).. The chosen test index which the underlying algorithms use is the well-established PRx, a moving correlation index between mean arterial blood pressure and intracranial pressure. This is based on the assumption that normal intracranial pressure (ICP) should not directly correlate with arterial blood pressure (ABP).. After loading the data, the algorithm packet averages the data to reduce information volume and calculates the PRx of the input waveforms. It will then search through the data to detect noteable events based on the set threshold parameters. Upon the detection of each potential IH location, the user will be prompted to state whether or not it is an artifact, ultimately resulting in a set of semi-supervised detected events.. The GUI provides a convenient interface to load, process, label, graph, and save the waveforms, features, and events. ...
