So what are normal ranges, well according to Wikipedia bear this in mind:-
ICP is normally 7–15 mm Hg;
at 20–25 mm Hg (the upper limit of normal) treatment to reduce ICP may be needed.
Lets look at another example
BP of 154/100,
PP 154 – 100 = 54,
MAP 100 + a third of the 54 (which would be 18), so MAP = 118
Now lets put this into the equasion to find out the ICP:-
CPP = MAP – ICP
80 = 118 – (in this case 38) which is raised intracranial pressure!!
