Intracranial pressure (ICP) is one of the most important parameters for evaluating intracranial conditons. The skulls of newborns and infants, unlike the tightly sutured skull of adults, provide non-invasive access for measurement of ICPs via the anterior fontanelle. A new transducer has been developed which is convenient for non-invasive, continuous measurement of intracranial pressure through the anterior fontanelle. The new transducer is thinner and lighter than the APT-16 type transducer… CONTINUE READING
