Keywords:

Increased intracranial pressure (ICP) causes neurological deterioration and death in acute stroke patients. There are many etiologies of intracranial hypertension among these patients such as cerebral ischemia complicated by cerebral edema, obstructive or non-obstructive hydrocephalus, large intracerebral hemorrhage. Management of elevated ICP includes recognition of changes in ICP, ICP monitoring and treatment. Urgent evaluation and tailoring intervention to the individual can help improving patient outcomes.

Abstract

Increased intracranial pressure (ICP) causes neurological deterioration and death in acute stroke patients. There are many etiologies of intracranial hypertension among these patients such as cerebral ischemia complicated by cerebral edema, obstructive or non-obstructive hydrocephalus, large intracerebral hemorrhage. Management of elevated ICP includes recognition of changes in ICP, ICP monitoring and treatment. Urgent evaluation and tailoring intervention to the individual can help improving patient outcomes.
