This article devoted to the diagnosis of intracranial hypertension in patients with intracranial hemorrhages. The persistent increase of intracranial pressure leads to disruption of cerebral perfusion, brain edema and ischemia. In this regard, fast correction of intracranial hypertension is one of the important tasks of intensive care patients with intracranial hemorrhages. The paper details the modern principles of measuring intracranial pressure.
