Patients who develop cerebrospinal fluid generally require a lumbar puncture to check for intracranial pressure. Especially in the process of cerebrospinal fluid aspiration, the intracranial pressure should be measured by the infusion rate of cerebrospinal fluid using a manometer that detects intracranial pressure. During the general inspection process, it was found that the patient had symptoms such as increased intraocular pressure, bulbar conjunctival edema, headache, and nausea. Since the intracranial fluctuated due to various factors, the pressure measured in a unit time had only relative significance. It is of great significance for the analysis of intracranial pressure. So what is intracranial pressure? How is intracranial pressure monitored? Next, Xiaobian from Gongcai.com will introduce a method for monitoring intracranial pressure using optical fiber pressure sensor – FOP-M260.
Intracranial pressure (ICP) refers to the pressure exerted by the contents of the cranial cavity on the walls of the cranial cavity, also known as brain pressure. Since the cerebrospinal fluid existing in the subarachnoid space and the cistern is between the cranial cavity wall and the brain tissue, and communicates with the subarachnoid space in the cerebral ventricle and the spinal cord, the hydrostatic pressure of the cerebrospinal fluid can represent the intracranial pressure, usually expressed as Cranial and cerebrospinal fluid pressure in lateral position. Puncture the cerebellomedullary cisterna or lateral ventricle, and the reading measured by a manometer tube or pressure gauge is the clinical intracranial pressure.
Intracranial pressure monitoring refers to the pressure of the contents of the cranial cavity on the cranial cavity wall. At this time, the intracranial pressure detection probe must be placed in the skull, and the probe should be placed on the forehead and occipital bone. Get a comprehensive understanding of changes in intracranial pressure. Therefore, it is critical to understand how intracranial pressure is measured after analyzing changes in intracranial pressure to help identify injury and cerebral edema in patients. A more accurate understanding of intracranial pressure should be carried out by means of continuous pressure measurement and recording.
In addition, the pressure measurement method used in intracranial pressure measurement is not closed, but open. For intracranial pressure measurement, it is recommended to use Canada FISO intracranial pressure pulmonary pressure arterial blood pressure fiber optic pressure sensor – FOP-M260.
FOP-M260 fiber optic pressure sensor is a small-volume, high-precision sensor designed for the medical field. Completely immune to electromagnetic interference and completely intrinsically safe to the human body.
