cpp equation

  1. 0
    Has anyone heard of the following equation to get a cpp value without a bolt or ventric in place. Equation goes as follows: map-cvp=cpp. This equation was recently brought to my attention, and my co-workers and I have discussed it quite thoroughly and have yet to find any literature about it. Let me know........

    Cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) and autoregulation
    • CPP is proportional to mean arterial pressure (MAP)
    • if ICP > right atrial pressure (RAP), then
      CPP = MAP - ICP
    • if RAP > ICP, then
      CPP = MAP - RAP (CVP is a measure of RAP)

    Also google "cerebral perfusion pressure and right atrial pressure" and you will have your answers.
