Intracranial pressure monitoring is a common procedure in neurosurgery. We most often need to perform intracranial pressure monitoring in brain trauma or when we are investigating the need to divert brain and spine fluid. This is an invasive procedure that involves putting a small pressure monitoring probe inside the brain and seeing how the pressure changes over time.
In this video we will show you the equipment we use for intracranial pressure monitoring and show some of the procedure on a model.
Many thanks to Susie from Delta Surgical for providing us the model and a Raumedic bolt.
This video is a collaboration with the NIHR Global Health Research Group on Neurotrauma (https://neurotrauma.world/). Their overarching mission is to improve global neurotrauma care through a series of projects and activities focussing on various aspects of traumatic brain injury (TBI) care in low and middle income countries (LMICs).
