Abstract/OtherAbstract:
INTRODUCTION: Many brain processes that cause death are mediated by intracranial hypertension (ICH). The natural course of this condition inevitably leads to brain death. The objective of this study is to carry out a systematic review of cerebral pathophysiology and intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring. DEVELOPMENT: Studying, monitoring, and recording ICP waves provide data about the presence of different processes that develop with ICH. CONCLUSIONS: Correct monitoring of ICP is fundamental for diagnosing ICH, and even more importantly, providing appropriate treatment in a timely manner.
