Abstract

This article is the second of two examining the causes of increased intracranial pressure in children. Key features and management associated with brain tumours and intracranial bleeds are highlighted. The conditions are accompanied by illustrative case studies to give an idea of what children's nurses may encounter in a patient presenting with raised intracranial pressure. Part one, published in December 2013, focused on the signs and symptoms of raised intracranial pressure and meningitis.
