Collaborative care for Increased Intracranial Pressure

Got some more mnemonics to think about.  Heh heh, get it? 8) Altered Neuro Functions. Enjoy!

Icreased ICP Nursing Care o Adequate oxygenation § Maintaining a patent airway § Trach? o AVOID clustering of activities o Keep neck and head in neutral position o Elevate HOB o Frequent vital sign and neuro assessments o Watch for electrolyte.

Increased Intracranial Pressure (ICP)

Increased Intracranial Pressure (ICP) Vital Signs · Changes in vital signs o ↑ BP* o ↓ Pulse o Change in body temperature o Changes in respiratory patterns + rate*

Cushing’s triad (Hypertension, bradycardia and irregular respirations) is one of the classic sign for elevated intracranial pressure. Hypertension is due to maintain cerebral perfusion pressure (Cerebral perfusion pressure = Mean arterial pressure – Intracranial pressure), when ICP increases cerebral perfusion must somehow maintained above 50 mm Hg). Bradycardia is a reflex response to hypertension and …

Another great way to remember Decorticate Posturing is that you turn inwards toward your CORE. Also, abnormal posturing occurs with increased intracranial pressure. It’s a great way to observe for changes in LOC.

Increased ICP Symptoms (0 - 15) = Normal Ranges **Any patient that becomes acutely unconscious, regardless of the cause should be suspected of having ↑ ICP** Causes: · Mass lesion (tumor) · Cerebral edema: o Can lead to SIADH or DI o Do NOT lay flat (might have edema in brain) o Reaches peak in 2 – 4 days, then subsides unless there is underlying pathology (cancer, DM, etc.) o Treatment: § Mannitol § Hypertonic Saline § Surgery (depending on cause trauma v. brain tumor) · NOT done if…

Increased intracranial pressure can be due to a rise in pressure of the cerebrospinal fluid. This is the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. Increase in intracranial pressure can also be due to a rise in pressure within the brain itself. This can be caused by a mass (such as a tumor), bleeding into the brain or fluid around the brain, or swelling within the brain itself.

Idiopathic intracranial hypertension is a disorder characterised by raised intracranial pressure that predominantly affects young, obese women. Pathogenesis has not been fully elucidated, but several causal factors have been proposed. Symptoms can include headaches, visual loss, pulsatile tinnitus, and back and neck pain, but the clinical presentation is highly variable. Although few studies have been done to support evidence-based management, several recent advances have the potential to…
