Abstract Little published data exists on whether nurse-recorded end-hour values of intracranial pressure (ICP) and cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) are representative of continuous monitoring during the hour. There is also no standard method of quantifying the observed perturbations in cerebral hemodynamics. This study compared the level of agreement between end-hour values and computer downloaded observations of ICP and CPP at 15-min intervals. We also developed the intracranial hypertension index and the cerebral hypoperfusion index to quantify perturbations in cerebral hemodynamics. Each of these indices relates the number of abnormal observations to the total number of observations taken.
