We at the Hydrocephalus Association are proud to announce our new online Hydrocephalus Resource Library. For decades now, our hydrocephalus support professionals have been providing education, information, and support to those living with hydrocephalus, their families and loved ones, and professionals working in the field. We know well how many burning, unanswered questions there are regarding the complicating factors associated with hydrocephalus. So, to support you further, we now have created an online library, filled with expert advice, research findings and plain old good thinking. The Hydrocephalus Resource Library allows you to search as deeply as you wish for answers or advice for the many complex questions you may have — any time of day or night, weekday or holiday!
Have you been wondering about the effect of scuba diving on shunts; flying and increased intracranial pressure; distal end complications, including abdominal pseudo-cysts; the effects of electro-magnetic fields on programmable/adjustable shunt valves; slit ventricle syndrome; pregnancy and hydrocephalus; constipation and shunts? Are you looking for advice on what to do when your scans are “normal” but you are having classic shunt failure symptoms? Answers to many of these questions and more can now be found in our brand new resource library HERE.
Today, we are inaugurating the new online Hydrocephalus Resource Library. This is just the beginning! Our Resource Library is an evolving, digital resource for you, and much of what it contains has come from our many conversations with you, as well as from research publications. When you ask a question of the Hydrocephalus Resource Library and it doesn’t provide an answer, the HA staff will add and update articles and other materials related to hydrocephalus. Please let us know what you think. As always, we appreciate any and all feedback you may have for us.
