Abstract

Intracranial pressure (ICP) could be an indicator of a neurological disorder known as hydrocephalus, which is currently managed by shunting procedure. This paper investigates the current advances of shunting valves and provides an overview of ICP readings interpretation from a medical point of view with reference to Alder Hey hospital in Liverpool, UK. Moreover, this paper helps to express ICP readings using advanced data science approach and prepares for implementing intelligent approaches as an alternative pathway to improve the use of ICP within the current medical system. It is assumed that this paper would help specialists and non-specialists in an informative way to comprehend ICP readings. It also allows combining ICP reading with other parameters to derive a proper action with respect to patients with hydrocephalus.
