IO craniotomy?

back after a bit of a layoff with a bit of an interesting, if maybe not ready for primetime procedure idea, via this Austrailian resus blog:

basically, in the setting of an expanding intracranial hematoma, evacuating the pressure to temporize (the alternative being herniation, then death).

while burr holes are preferred, if you have nothing else, interesting to see this on the horizon as a potential option.
