In the article beginning on page 703 of the September 2013 issue, on page 706, in the “Intracranial Compliance” section, the variables are inverted in the compliance ratio equation.
The correct definition should have been presented as follows: “Intracranial compliance (C) is defined as the change in volume (ΔV) for any given change in pressure (ΔP), or C = ΔV/ΔP.”
The authors regret this error.
