Intracranial pressure is an important parameter to monitor, and elevated intracranial pressure can be life threatening. Elevated intracranial pressure is indicative of distress in the brain attributed by conditions such as aneurysm, traumatic brain injury, brain tumor, hydrocephalus, stroke, or meningitis. Electrocorticography (ECoG) recordings are invaluable in understanding epilepsy and detecting seizure zones. However, ECoG electrodes cause a foreign body mass effect, swelling, and pneumocephaly, which results in elevation of intracranial pressure (ICP). Thus, the aim of this work is to design an intracranial pressure monitoring system that could augment ECoG electrodes. A minimally invasive, low-cost epidural intracranial pressure monitoring …
