Description: Headache is a common neurological complaint, but when the headache is associated with either high or low pressure, a complicated headache picture begins to emerge. We will explore the relationship of headache and pressure. In this course we will review the clinical approach to headaches associated with low and high pressure. We will discuss clues to recognizing headaches associated with low and high pressure. We will review the evaluation and management of headaches using a case-based approach. The faculty will guide the attendees through conundrums about the management of these disorders and highlight principles of treatment. Attendees are encouraged to submit cases to the faculty that could be used for discussion.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to describe the approach to diagnosing headache associated with high and low pressure and enumerate treatment options.
