[Research Presentation] Neurological patients are prepense to develop immobility complications. Body position can increase intracranial pressure, and, because of this, neurological patients are maintained in the bed for a long periods of time without body mobilization. Several studies on literature relate the intracranial pressure increase with head elevation and monitoring ways to this problem. The aim this study was to determine the intracranial pressures values during body repositioning in neurological patients admitted in intensive care unit. Permission was obtained from the ethical committee. A quasi-experimental repeated-measures design was used to this study, done in an intensive care unit of the Brazilian University Hospital. The population was 20 patients with critical neurological disease. All patients had sedation and mechanical ventilation, intracranial pressure monitoring and head elevation on 30 grade. Relative's patients informed consent for enrollment in the study. Data were collected by researchers. The variables studied were: type of pathology; type of mechanical ventilation; sedation medicines; cardiac rates; arterial blood pressure; intracranial pressure and oxygen saturation. All patients were positioned, by 15 minutes each position, on this body position sequence: dorsal decubitus; right lateral decubitus (30 grade); dorsal decubitus; left lateral decubitus (30 grade) and dorsal decubitus. During the data collect, the patients were maintained in 30 grade head elevation and neutral head position. The data will be analyzed by researchers to statistical tests application. The results of this study can help nursing team to improve the quality care nursing about the patient body mobilization and complications prevention.
