Myogenic autoregulation of cerebral blood flow is one of the mechanisms affecting cerebral hemodynamics. Short or long-lasting changes in intracranial pressure (ICP) are believed to reveal the responses of the cerebral system to myogenic stimuli. Through the incorporation of a theoretical model into the experimental measurements of cerebrovascular(More)
A new approach to study the pulse transmission between the cerebrovascular bed and the intracranial space is presented. In the proposed approach, the normalized power transmission between ABP and ICP has got the main attention rather than the actual power transmission. Evaluating the gain of the proposed transfer function at any single frequency can reveal(More)
The study aimed to investigate baroreceptor reflex sensitivity in a patient with head injury for whom plateau waves of intracranial pressure (ICP) were recorded. Baroreflex sensitivity index was separately estimated on top of plateau waves and during intermediate intervals between two consecutive waves. The EuroBaVar data set was utilized to verify and(More)
The study aimed to determine the potential of pulse wave velocity measurements to reflect changes in compliant cerebral arteries/arterioles in head injured patients. The approach utilizes the electrocardiogram and intracranial pressure signals to measure the wave transit time between heart and cranial cavity. Thirty five clinical records of nineteen head(More)
BACKGROUND The transfer functions which map the arterial blood pressure to the intracranial pressure and the compensatory reserve index have been investigated by various groups to evaluate the brain compliance of patients with traumatic brain injury. The focus of this study has been to assess the capability of both the above mentioned methods to monitor the(More)
