CSF Management

CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) is a watery fluid, continuously produced and absorbed, which flows in the ventricles within the brain and around the surface of the brain and spinal cord. If production exceeds absorption, the CSF pressure rises and the result is hydrocephalus. This can also occur if the CSF pathways are obstructed and CSF accumulated.

Short term treatment intervention is possible via an external ventricular drain (EVD), a device used to drain CSF and relieve elevated intracranial pressure. Attached to the distal end of the EVD will be a drainage system which is used to regulate the drainage of CSF.
