Transcript

  • 1. ncreased Intracranial Pressure
  • 2. It is an increased in normal brain pressure due to increases cerebrospinal fluid pressure. Also, maybe d/t increased pressure within the brain matter caused by lesions or swelling. ncreased Intracranial Pressure
  • 3. Head injury / Secondary effects ↓ Cerebral perfusion ↓ Swelling (edema) ↓ Shifting of brain tissue ↓ Herniation Pathophysiology
  • 4. Cerebral Edema <ul><li>Abnormal accumulation of water/fluid in the intra or extra cellular space, associated with an increase in brain tissue volume. </li></ul>
  • 5. Autoregulation <ul><li>One of several mechanisms of brain that attempt to compensate of the increasing ICP. </li></ul><ul><li>The ability of the brain to change the diameter of its blood vessels automatically to maintain a constant cerebral blood flow during alteration in systemic blood pressure. </li></ul>
  • 6. Cerebral Response to Increased ICP <ul><li>As ICP rises, compensatory much in the brain work to maintain blood flow and prevent tissue damage. </li></ul><ul><li>Cushing response (Cushing reflex) </li></ul><ul><li>- When cerebral blood flow decreased significantly. </li></ul><ul><li>Cushing triad </li></ul><ul><li>- Bradycardia </li></ul><ul><li>- Bradypnea </li></ul><ul><li>- Hypertension </li></ul>
