Abstract

Sodium nitroprusside (SNP), an induced hypotensive agent has been shown to be a cerebral vasodilator and increase intracranial presure (ICP) [5, 7]. SNP hypotension has become a frequently used technique for various surgical procedures and during clinical treatment of hypertensive crisis [6].
