Abstract

Although intracranial volume — pressure relationships can be directly determined, volume — pressure testing is an invasive and potentially dangerous maneuver requiring a ventricular or lumbar catheter. Therefore, we examined three nonprovocative mathematical techniques for estimating the volume — pressure relationship by analyzing the shape and character of the ICP waveform.
