Raised intracranial pressure

Clinical signs 6Gl Diagnosis 6G2 Management 6G3 Treatment 6G4

The rigid bony skull surrounding the brain is resistant to any increase in the volume of its contents, with any such change readily leading to a rise in intra-cranial pressure and displacement of structures. Elevated intra-cranial pressure is characterized in its early stages by headache and vomiting, often worse in the morning. With increasing pressure there is drowsiness, heralding a more rapid neurological deterioration. Changes in pressure can sometimes be more gradual with memory loss and behavioural difficulties.
