Elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) episodes are associated with poor outcome and should be prevented. We developed models to predict these episodes 30 minutes in advance, and to predict long-term neurological outcome by using dynamic characteristics of continuous ICP and mean arterial pressure (MAP) monitoring.

HL P value
Dynamic data in continuous MAP and ICP monitoring allows prediction of elevated ICP. Adding information of the first 24 hours of ICP and MAP to known risk factors allows accurate prediction of neurological outcome at 6 months.
