intracranial compliance monitoring

intracranial compliance monitoring

Assessment of the ability of the brain to respond to injuries, swelling, or bleeding. Intracranial compliance monitoring is used in the management of critically ill patients, esp. those who have suffered severe brain injury or intracranial bleeding. Unlike intracranial pressure monitoring, it is performed noninvasively (usually with an ultrasound probe) without creating a hole in the skull or inserting a sensor directly into the cerebrospinal fluid.
