Neurologic deterioration in a patient can occur rapidly and have devastating consequences. Accordingly, early identification of increased intracranial pressure (ICP) along with swift initiation of lifesaving interventions is critical. The purpose of this session is to provide a framework for identifying the sometimes subtle early signs of increased ICP and understanding the interventions that must follow to prevent herniation and patient death. This will be achieved by providing easy-to-understand intra cranial dynamics, reviewing the patients at highest risk for developing increased ICP and discussing the evidence-based interventions for prevention and treatment of increased ICP.
