Treatment of Increased Intracranial Pressure Using Oncodiuretic Therapy: Combined Albumin and Furosemide
Elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) is a common complication of severe head injury, intracranial hemorrhage, cerebral infarction, intracranial neoplasms, and some toxic and viral encephalopathies. Although the ability to normalize ICP does not guarantee a good recovery, aggressive management of elevated ICP has been shown to significantly decrease mortality (Marshall et al. 1979).
