Intracranial pressure


The pressure that affects the cerebrospinal fluid on a substance contained in the brain, as well as on its membranes and blood vessels, is called intracranial. In another way, the cerebrospinal fluid is called - cerebrospinal fluid; it is produced by the special structures of the brain - tangles from the vessels. The brain is surrounded by three layers: the outer - the dura, the middle - the arachnoid, and the closest to the brain - the choroid. Between the outer and middle shells there is a slit-like space in which there is a large number of connective tissue fibers. It is just filled with cerebrospinal fluid that protects the brain from shocks and jolts.

The pressure of this fluid is most often constant; but minor changes may occur depending on the time of day, on the person’s posture (when a person is sitting, lying or standing) and on the amount of blood pressure.

Symptoms of intracranial pressure

Intracranial pressure usually produces mild symptoms, and many people simply do not feel them. Signs of intracranial pressure become noticeable when the function of cerebrospinal fluid discharge is disturbed, for example, due to the development of inflammation of the brain or during a traumatic brain injury. In these cases, the accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid occurs in the cracks between the membranes of the brain, and its pressure increases. A person begins to feel sick, there may be emetic urges, a headache begins to hurt, and his eyesight may be impaired.

It should be noted that at the initial stage of the development of intracranial pressure, its symptoms practically do not manifest, because of this, many people blame the slight indisposition for fatigue or weather conditions.
