Why the overpressure on the anterior fontanelle by neonatal brain ultrasound cause bradycardia of the neonate?

Why the overpressure on the anterior fontanelle by neonatal brain ultrasound cause bradycardia of the neonate?

Cushing reflex : Increased intracranial pressure from any cause at any age & decreased blood flow to certain parts of the brain can cause Cushing's triad: increased blood pressure, irregular breathing, & bradycardia. Since a neonate's skull bones aren't fused, increased pressure causes the fontanelle to bulge. Doctors will determine the cause - hydrocephalus, bleeding, infection, etc. & reduce the pressure ASAP. ...Read more

The heart rate is very sensitive to changes in mood, level of wakefulness, levels of adrenaline or acetylcholine (anti-adrenaline) in the body among so many other factors. If you have no symptoms with a heart rate of 110 than no worries. Symptoms to look for: shortness of breath, chest pain or dizziness ...Read more
