The Prognostic Value of Continuous Intraventricular Pressure Recording in Unconscious Brain-Injury Patients Under Controlled Ventilation
Since LUNDBERG’s introduction of a clinically applicable method for the continuous recording of intraventricular pressure (IVP) (1), the prognostic value of IVP has been subjected to several investigations (2,3). Thus, a high level of IVP has been claimed to give prognostic information (3).
