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)
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)
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)
