Diagnosis and treatment of increased in-traumatic brain pressure

Inland cranial hypertension should be accurately diagnosed and treated promptly to minimize complications caused later as well as the risk of death for patients.

1. Diagnosis of increased in-skull pressure

Patients will be thoroughly diagnosed with increased in-skull pressure as well as the cause of the syndrome. Specific diagnoses that will be made to people with signs of increased incranial pressure include:

1.1 Diagnosis of increased in-skull pressure determination

  • Growing headaches
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • There may be accompanying consciousness disorders
  • Endoscopy of the bottom of the eye: Visual edema
  • CRANIAL CT scanner or cranial resonance imaging: The cause of increased in-skull pressure can be identified.

1.2 Diagnosis of differentiated in-skull pressure increase

  • Coma: Increased osmosis coma, xeton acidity, hypothalemia, liver coma …
  • Blurred vision: Physical eye diseases
  • Headaches: Causes of peripheral nerves, vascular disorders

1.3 Diagnosis of increased in-skull pressure causes

  • Due to traumatic brain injury: patients with CT scans can see images of brain bleeding, brain damage caused by bumps, fractures of the skull bones.
  • Due to brain bleeding: Images of bleeding in brain, erbular, srachnoidal bleeding during CT scan
  • Brain tumors: Recognize images, location, size, number of brain tumors during resonance imaging or CT
  • Hydrocephalus: CT scanner and MRI scans show enlarged brain imaging
  • Due to neurological infections: Through a test for cencephabrospinal fluid will tell the increased protein accompanied by increased leukocytosis (purulent meningitis). meningitis, brain aneths, MRI scans can clearly see images of encephalitis, brain aneths.

In addition, the diagnosis of increased intcapable pressure is also through other signs such as hypothermia, hypoxia, mechanical ventilators using PEEP, increased temperature > 40 degrees Celsius, continuous stretching, hyponatremia through electrolytical testing, convulsions through blood bio-testing with increased blood CK.

2. Treatment of increased in-skull pressure

In-traumatic stress administration is applied in hypertension caused by brain tumors, traumatic brain hematoma, hematoma and extensive cerebral emulsion in the cerebral sub-brain, some brain anesthoma depending on the patient's specific design and case.

Necessary medical treatment for respiratory disorders, or chemotherapy, hypertension maintains brain perfusion pressure (60 -80 mmHg). Antibiotics in purulent meningitis, acute, antiviral tumors as in herpes simplex encephalitis. In the treatment of increased intra-cranial pressure, the patient avoids sudden position changes.

Patients with increased in-skull pressure will receive symptomatic treatment including:

  • Eliminate extracranial factors such as reducing vein pressure by lying on your back, raising your head to about 10-30 0 to avoid carnational vein pressure, avoiding sedative irritation
  • Treatment of respiratory disorders to combat hypoxia, increase CO2, low osmosis pressure should limit water and avoid using osmosis solution.
  • Anti-cerebral edema using Corticoids, usually dexamethasone (Soludecadron tube 4mg) at first bolus 10 mg, after 4 mg every 6 hours. Typically 16 – 24mg/day or Synacthen (Tetracosaclide) 1- 2 mg/24 hours.
  • Treatment of decreased epidemics in the brain with weeds, increased ular clearance …

What is Corticoid

Corticoids are used in the treatment of inland cranial hypertension

For each case of increased in-skull pressure in each specific patient, the treatment will be applied, combining flexibly to have the highest therapeutic effect.
