Abstract

Raised intracranial pressure (ICP) or intracranial hypertension is defined as a sustained ICP greater than 20 mmHg. A wide range of etiologies can cause elevated ICP including stroke, intracranial hemorrhage, traumatic brain injury, hydrocephalus, brain tumors, venous obstruction, and central nervous system infection. ICP must be measured via an invasive brain monitor. This chapter reviews the evidence-based treatment of raised ICP with mannitol, hypertonic saline, hypothermia, barbiturates, and decompressive craniotomy.
