Neurologic Formulas and Parameters




INTRACRANIAL PRESSURE



Listen






  • Normal 0 to 20 mmHg





CEREBRAL PERFUSION PRESSURE (CPP)



Listen




Formula: CPP = Mean Arterial Pressure (MAP) − Intracranial Pressure (ICP)




  • Infants: 40 mmHg



  • Adults: 65 mmHg




    • Changes throughout development: parallels changes in systemic blood pressure (BP); increases gradually throughout development to adult levels.



    • Consider patient’s baseline BP: Baseline MAP should be considered when considering therapeutic target for CPP in setting of acute neurologic injury. A patient with baseline hypertension will need blood pressure supported to a level that approximates their baseline physiology.



    • In adults poor outcomes are associated with sustained CPP <40 mmHg.
