Intra-ocular pressure changes during maximal isometric contraction: does this reflect intra-cranial pressure or retinal venous pressure?
Recent publications have suggested that intra-ocular pressure (IOP) may be an indirect assessment of intra-cranial pressure (ICP). Both IOP and ICP have similar physiologic pressure ranges andExpand
