Epidural Intracranial Pressure Monitoring: A New Methodology

Epidural Intracranial Pressure Monitoring: A New Methodology

The new sensor is designed for easy placement in epidural space and acts as a pneumatic flow switch. Air enters plenum at 40 cc/mm. Outside pressure against membrane will close off exhaust. The pressure which builds up within the plenum to overcome pressure against the membrane and re-establish air flow represents the ICP. The sensor is injection molded and disposable.
