|Abstract:||Objective: To evaluate influence of the respiratory physiotherapy on intracranial pressure (ICP) in patients with severe head trauma. Method: Thirty five patients with severe head trauma were included in the study. The patients were divided into three groups: ICP 0-10, 11-20 and 21-30 mmHg, The following variables were measured: ICP and mean arterial pressure. Cerebral perfusion pressure was calculated as the difference between mean arterial and intracranial pressure. Results: Endotracheal aspiration increased ICP in all patients. The mean arterial pressure didn't change and cerebral perfusion pressure decreased, but remaning normal value. Conclusion: Respiratory physiotherapy maneuvers can be safely applied in patients with severe head trauma with ICP below 30 mmHg. More attention should be taken during endotracheal aspiration.|
