Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR NONINVASIVE MONITORING OF INTRACRANIAL PRESSURE
(FR) METHODE ET APPAREIL DE CONTROLE DE LA PRESSION INTRA CRANIENNE SANS PENETRATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Method and apparatus for noninvasive monitoring of the intracranial pressure of mammals. The method preferably consists of occluding the jugular vein (20) at a selected location so as to interrupt the flow of blood temporarily and then determining the rate of change of blood flow within the jugular vein upstream of such location over a predetermined period of time following its occlusion. Means (27) controlled by the operation of a computer (73) may be utilized for automatically occluding the jugular and for inducing detectable electrical signals representative of the flow of blood within the jugular.
(FR)Methode et appareil de controle sans penetration de la pression intra cranienne des mammiferes. La methode consiste a occlure la veine jugulaire (20) a un endroit choisi de maniere a interrompre le flux sanguin temporairement et a determiner la vitesse de changement du debit sanguin dans la veine jugulaire en amont de cet endroit pendant une periode de temps predeterminee apres son occlusion. Des moyens (27) commandes par un ordinateur (73) peuvent etre utilises pour occlure automatiquement la veine jugulaire et pour induire des signaux electriques detectables representant le debit sanguin dans la veine jugulaire.
