  Purpose

The SIM City study seeks to explore for the variance in practice that is associated with nursing and medical care of patients with brain pressure (ICP) monitors. The underlying hypothesis is that there is not a consistent pattern of care throughout the U.S., rather, there is a wide range of practice patterns that are used to monitor and treat ICP.
