In the horizontal position, the normal ICP in healthy adult subjects was reported to be within the range of 7–15 mm Hg. In the vertical position it is negative with a mean of around −10 mm Hg, but not exceeding −15 mm Hg. The definition of raised ICP depends on the specific pathology. Viral meningitis is not a normal situation.
