Rapid Fire: Understanding IOP, Perfusion Pressure, and Cerebrospinal Fluid Pressure in Glaucoma (Credit, 1 Hour, 67662-GL)
Recorded On: 11/09/2018
IOP is the only modifiable risk factor in glaucoma management. However, its exact impact on glaucoma remains a mystery. Our glaucoma management often relies on only one IOP measurement every few months which is likely insufficient to fully understand the nyctohemeral impact of IOP on the optic nerve. Recent literature has shed light on the importance of two other pressures that might be of equal importance in glaucoma management. This Rapid Fire format course will highlight the proposed roles of 24 hour IOP, ocular perfusion pressure and cerebrospinal fluid pressure with a focus on their clinical relevance in glaucoma management.
