While stroke researchers have noted side effects such as pneumonia, bradycardia (slow heartbeat), cardiac arrythmia (irregular heartbeat), and arterial hypotension (low blood pressure), these conditions are potentially less serious in the long run and can usually be managed by emergency room physicians.
Withdrawal of CSF and head elevation result in a decrease in mean ICP and ICP waveform amplitude but little change in the waveform configuration.[11] Increased ICP from increased CSF volume results in an increase in the ICP waveform amplitude, also with little change in the configuration.[10,11,17,21,42] Extreme arterial hypotension and hypertension produce changes in the ICP waveform, particularly P1.
