Well, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, just one more exam left….and I should be basking in the sun around 4:00 on Friday. Until then, I feel as though my head is so full it may just explode!! My classmates will tell you that is probably impossible and that my inter-cranial pressure (ICP) is probably normal.
Normal ICP 10 -15 mmHg
Figurative ICP : A BILLION mmO’Sullivan
PS: Red Flags for mobilization in the ICU include:
Increased ICP, Unstable vitals, acute infection, signs of a DVT/PE, or a change in neuro exam or NIHSS.
