Abstract

The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of head elevation on mean arterial pressure, blood pressure, and intracranial pressure among hemorrhagic stroke at the Margono Soekarjo Hospital Purwokerto on 2011. The study was employed quasi experimental design pre and post test with control group. This research used analytical descriptive. And, the data was analyzed by t test dependent and chi square analysis approach. There was significant effect of head elevation positioning on mean arterial pressure, blood pressure, and intracranial pressure among hemorrhagic stroke patients after the treatment (p value 0, 00) of intervention group in the Margono Soekarjo Hospital Purwokerto. Meanwhile, there was no significant change of control group on mean arterial pressure, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and intracranial pressure (p values were 0,206, 0,761 and 0,092, and 0,058 respectively). The study showed that there was significant effect of head elevation positioning on mean arterial pressure, blood pressure, and intracranial pressure among hemorrhagic stroke patients after the treatment (p value 0, 00).
