[Intraventricular brain pressure in newborn infants with asphyxia and the means for its correction]
The paper deals with the information noninvasive tool of echoencephalographic determination of cerebral intraventricular pressure in the newborns. With this mode, spinal fluid pressures were measured in 80 patients with prior degrees II and III asphyxia and in 25 healthy children in the early neonatal period. To enhance the efficiency of treating the fluid-hypertensive syndrome in the newborns with hypoxically afflicted central nervous system, an atraumatic method of reflex therapy, including superficial acupuncture, metallic plate acupuncture and application has been developed and proposed if chemotherapeutical loads are restricted. Recommendations to choose acupuncture points are given and the advantages of the method are analyzed.
