Non-invasive intracranial pressure measurement methods[edit]

Thank you for writing this interesting article. I would recommend removing the patents (they are not typically good sources for scientific knowledge) and ensuring that all references comply with WP:MEDRS, the medical sources guideline.

I have removed links to the article from various articles where it was not immediately clear why you had linked to it. For instance, on intracranial pressure you added it to a section discussing exclusively the various invasive modalities! There is no harm, however, in adding a few lines about non-invasive methods.

I have just reviewed your edits on intracranial pressure and intracranial pressure monitoring. I am slightly surprised by your suggestion that stroke, migraine, glaucoma and Alzheimer's are associated with raised ICP. Of course some stroke patients may develop malignant MCA syndrome, but on the whole I really don't understand why you have chosen these conditions in favour of the classical causes of raised ICP (hydrocephalus, meningitis, IIH etc). What are you getting at? JFW | T@lk 11:51, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

I wanted to highlight other diseases, that are associated with ICP, but can not be studied more deep, because of ICP measurement invasiveness. Everybody know classical causes, such as menningitis and etc. There are studies showing icp influence on galucoma, stroke, Alzheimer's.. (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S030698771100301X#s0030, http://www.iovs.org/content/49/12/5412.full, http://journals.lww.com/co-ophthalmology/Abstract/2010/03000/Intracranial_pressure_and_glaucoma.4.aspx); (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0303846707003162, http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0306987704000878). (http://journals.lww.com/co-neurology/Abstract/2003/06000/Headaches_caused_by_decreased_intracranial.11.aspx). Stroke association with icp is mentioned in these articles as allready known and natural. (http://www.lib.ctgu.edu.cn:8080/wxcd/qw/201.pdf ; http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1739058/). If, in your opinion, it is not enough evidence, I will remove about these diseases. User:Vaizdu | T@lk 15:33, 11 August 2011
