Intra-Cranial Pressure is the reflection of the pressure exerted by the three components of the cranium, namely the brain, the blood and the cerebro-spinal fluid. Should it increase too much, it can prevent the adequate blood perfusion of brain tissues and provoke damages. In case of risks of increase in Intra-Cranial Pressure, an ICP monitoring system will provide continuous ICP values. This will help to give the patient the adequate treatment with a view to preserve brain tissues and functionalities.
