Prediction of ICP and Pressure Wave Discrimination with Our Intelligent Monitor System (IMNIC-1)
The clinical importance of continuous monitoring of ICP with other polygraphic data for intensive care of neurosurgical cases is already well-known. Successful feed-back of these polygraphic data for automated control of critically ill cases was reported in other fields (4, 5). There are few reports on the trials of automated control of ICP by signals from a continuous monitor (3), since the theoretical basis of pathophysiological mechanism of ICP is not yet well-established in spite of a numerous reports on clinical and experimental analysis of ICP.
