Viva 4

This Viva will test your knowledge about intracranial pressure and cerebral blood flow.

Q 1. What are the determinants of intracranial pressure?

This viva explored basic and highly relevant area of CNS physiology. Candidates are expected to draw, interpret and explain the relationship between intracranial pressure, cerebral blood flow and variety of chemical and physiologic control mechanisms as they may be illustrated within graphs. Basic pharmacologic pharmacologic principles of ICP control were also discussed. Lack of knowledge depth and conceptual understanding were areas that need further attention.
