Swelling may raise pressure within the skull (intracranial pressure) and may block the flow of oxygen to the brain.

In the brain, it causes fluid accumulation (edema), which leads to a rise in pressure in the brain (intracranial pressure).
Intracranial pressure is monitored and, if elevated, is treated with drugs such as mannitol and barbiturates placing the patient on a ventilator so that hyperventilation can be used.
