Findings Fifty-two measurements were performed in 16 patients. ICP could be determined in 45 measurements in 15 patients. Seven patients had an ICP>15 mmHg and 11 patients had a CPP<60 mmHg on at least 1 day. We found no significant correlation between ICP and fluid administration, but low CPP was significantly correlated with elevated S-100β (r=−0.47, p=0.001).
