The Effects of Head Position and Jugular Vein Compression (JVC) on Intracranial Pressure (ICP). A Clinical Study

  • A. Hulme
  • R. Cooper


It has been shown that large increases of ICP can be caused by flexion of the head in patients with posterior fossa tumors (6). Such increases might be harmful in some patients.
