Neurological Aspects of Reanimatology

  • V. A. Negovsky
Conference paper


The fact that resuscitation of cerebral functions has become the central problem of modern reanimatology is apparently no longer questionable. Restoration of cardiac and respiratory activity and normalization of the affected metabolic functions are directed toward one common aim, namely, to prevent the brain from death, to help it get over the disorders which have emerged in the dying process. It is no mere chance that even ancient authors, mentioning three gates of death, spoke of the heart, lungs, and brain.
