Abstract

The creation of a record of the pressures from transducers connected to arterial or CVP lines does not require a chart recorder as these physiological signals are relatively stable. In contrast, the ICP signal is very different and is renowned for its transient variations. For the last 25 years, a good quality robust chart recorder has proved essential for the accurate permanent record of ICP at the bedside. Archiving and monitoring requirements may well demand different data reduction techniques.
