Abstract

Severe cerebral acidosis, which is often accompanied by normal or only slight alterations in arterial blood-gas or acid-base levels, is shown by animal experiments to have three main causes:
  1. 1.

    respiratory, through hypoxia

     
  2. 2.

    cerebral, owing to a decrease in the cerebral blood flow (anoxidative metabolism)

     
  3. 3.

    direct lesion of brain tissue
