A noninvasive approach to measuring intracranial pressure in newborns based on optical principles and devoid of electrical hazards is described. This monitoring technique can be used to detail subtle changes in measurements in ill newborns and to predict hydrocephalus. The mean anterior fontanel pressure in normal infants was 10.14 +/- 0.39 cm H2O. Increased pressure was noted in sick neonates and in infants with hydrocephalus. Good correlation was noted between anterior fontanel pressure and… CONTINUE READING
