Abstract

Since the importance of monitoring the intracranial pressure (ICP) was pointed out by Lundberg et al. in 1965 (2), a number of papers have been published on the methods of measuring the ICP. They could be classified into two major categories. One is a group of simple, practical and non-electronic devices and the other is a group of more elaborate electronic instruments. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages over others. Unfortunately, no ideal perfect device has yet been seen on the market. Therefore, one has to chose a device by compromising with its performances and one’s specific requirements.
