The increasing number of head injuries following motor vehicle accidents have made this research important. The effect of nursing care activities and scheduled rest periods on the intracranial pressure of the head injured patient was studied An experimental design was used in the empirical study where 23 patients were observed Although a significant difference could not be demonstrated between the experimental and control groups in terms of the influence of rest periods the effect of the various nursing care procedures is clearly demonstrated, and careful planning of nursing care is therefore an important factor that must always be borne in mind.
