The pressure-volume relationship (PVR) in the intracranial cerebrospinal fluid space has been a matter of investigation for quite sometime. The quantitative considerations of the PVR are believed to have important clinical implications, and attempts have been made to study the pressure-volume characteristics associated with a variety of disease states.(More)
Complications of epidural pressure (EDP) monitoring are much less severe than those of ventricular fluid pressure (VFP) monitoring. Hence, an insight into the relationship between the epidural and the ventricular pressures is of clinical importance. The pressure volume response as obtained during infusion tests performed on dogs can be categorized into two(More)
For a proper understanding and interpretation of the changes in the power spectral characteristics of surface EMG from any fatigued muscle of a worker employed on repetitive assembly line tasks, it is important to study first the changes in the spectral characteristic of the surface EMG of the same muscle of the worker assigned with non-repetitive tasks.(More)
Several experimental studies have been made in the past to try to understand the nature of the fluid-induced changes in the intracranial pressures of the animals by infusing fluid into their craniospinal complex. The objective of the present investigation was to study the changes in the characteristics of the ventricular and epidural pressure-volume curves(More)
Clinical data obtained about intracranial pressure volume experiments abound in the literature. However, what is lacking is a proper interpretation of the data. A nonlinear hyperelastic model is proposed in this paper which is more realistic and simulates successfully the various states and stages of infantile hydrocephalus which have hitherto been(More)
