Monitoring of pressures in the head is a key clinical tool in the assessment and treatment of patients in the neurointensive care unit. It is widely documented that rises in these pressures, prolonged or otherwise, can have detrimental effect on the long term outcomes of these patients. To understand this effect, this study proposed to investigate the temporal nature of these increases across the patients stay and attempt to predict the eventual outcome, adapting the prediction as more information becomes available over the course of admission. This could lead to earlier clinical interventions and improved overall outcomes.
