Oscillation of Intracranial Pressure and Local Cerebral Metabolism
Lundberg recorded intracranial pressure (ICP) continuously in over one hundred patients and classified the ICP variation into three types, that is, A-wave or more commonly called the plateau wave, B-wave and C-wave (5). He also described the clinical significance of each wave. Ever since, a lot of knowledge and understanding on this problem has been continuously accumulated. Little is known, however, about the basic mechanism involved in the rhythmic variation of ICP.
