Managing the Patient with Neurological Monitoring Devices and Drains

Managing the Patient with Neurological Monitoring Devices and Drains  

The cranial space includes brain tissue, blood, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The volume of these 3 components needs to stay constant and blood and CSF) must remain equal and constant If not, complications can occur with intracranial pressure (ICP). It is crucial for the clinician to have expert knowledge in the monitoring of neurological processes and changes to promote favorable outcomes for patients who have experienced any kind or neurological trauma or insult. The goal of this course is to increase the knowledge of the clinician monitoring a neurological patient who has 1 or more drains that contribute to the assessment of the patient's neurological status and overall health.
