Overview:
Caring for a patient with traumatic injuries means paying attention to a lot of different signs and symptoms at once, which is why these patients are often kept in the intensive care unit (ICU) or other higher level of care. A patient may initially be considered stable enough for a medical, surgical, or telemetry floor but then need to be transferred to a higher level of care because of a worsening condition. One sign of a worsening condition is increasing intracranial pressure (ICP). Increased ICP can cause seizures, herniation of brain tissue, brain death, or patient death. It is important that all nurses are aware of the signs of increased ICP so they can act quickly to support their patients and prevent a potentially fatal outcome.
