The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of chest physiotherapy (CPT) on intracranial pressure (ICP). Because CPT is a normal part of the routine care provided to patients in the neurocritical care unit (NCU) this is an observational study of current practice.
- The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of chest physiotherapy (CPT) on intracranial pressure (ICP). Because CPT is a normal part of the routine care provided to patients in the neurocritical care unit (NCU) this is an observational study of current practice.
- The study will include only patients who currently have intracranial pressure monitoring devices in place (intraventricular and intraparenchymal). The study will last 1-hour and all subjects in the study will receive 10-minutes of CPT. The 10-minute CPT episode will be randomly assigned to occur 10, 20, 30 or 40-minutes into the study.
- ANCOVA using SAS will be used to explore for within and between group differences in ICP. This study observes current standard practice, there are no additional risks to the subject.
