Abstract

It has been pointed out that an absolute value of ICP alone, although important, does not provide enough information about the on-going critical changes of intracranial hemodynamics. Using transcranial Doppler it is possible to record blood flow velocities (FV) of basal arteries of the brain allowing us to monitor the hemodynamic changes instantaneously (Aaslid et al. 1982). We assessed the correlation between ICP and FV to investigate a noninvasive measure of intracranial pathology.
