Traumatic Brain Injury is the primary cause of death and disability all over the world. Monitoring the intracranial pressure (ICP) and classifying it for hypertension signals is of crucial importance. This thesis explores the possibility of a better classification of the ICP signal and detection of hypertensive signal prior to the actual occurrence of the hypertensive episodes. This study differ from other approaches astime series is converted into images by Gramian angular field and Markov transition matrix and augmented with data. Due to unbalanced data, the effect of smote extended nearest neighbour algorithm for balancing the data is examined. We use various machine learning algorithms to classify the ICP signals. The results obtained shoe that Ada boost performance is the best among compared algorithms. F1 score of the Ada boost is 0.95 on original dataset, and 0.9967 on balanced and augmented dataset. Quadratic Discriminant Analysis F1 score is 1 when data is augmented and balanced.
