ICP PRIMARY- injury that occurs at the initial time of injury SECONDARY- result of hypoxia, ischemia, hypotension, edema, increased ICP ICP- hydrostatic force measured in the brain CSF compartment. Under normal conditions in which Intracranial volume remains relatively constant, the balance among the three components: brain tissue, blood, CSF). maintains the ICP Factors that affect ICP - Arterial pressure, - Venous pressure - Intraabdominal and intrathoracic pressure - Posture - Temperature - Blood glasses carbon dioxide levels Monroe Kellie Doctrine- 3 components must remain at a relatively constant volume within the closed skull structure. - If the volume of any one of the 3 components increases within the cranial vault and the volume from another component is displaced, the total intracranial volume will not change. - Only applicable when the skull is closed. ICP can be measured using a pressure transducer in the ventricles, subarachnoid space,
