Effects of Alterations in Blood-Gas Tensions on the Responsiveness of the Cerebral Circulation One Week After the Induction of Subarachnoid Haemorrhage
Studies in the baboon have shown that the responsiveness of the cerebral circulation to alterations in systemic arterial pressure was impaired 1 week after the induction of an artificial subarachnoid haemorrhage(1). The present report describes the effects of alterations in arterial carbon dioxide tension and arterial oxygen tension on cerebral blood flow (CBF) in the same animal model.
