Pressure Normal pressure ranges from 50-200 mm of water (values below 180 mm are clearly normal; values above 200 mm are clearly elevated) b. Fluctuations, or pressure waves, secondary to pulse and respirations are normally present c. Type A or plateau (Lundberg) waves - prolonged and marked elevations of pressure occurring in pathologic states Intracranial cavity has limited space for tissue expansion - any change in one intracranial component requires compensatory changes in other components and alters intracranial pressure 1.
