Abstract

Subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) has profound effects on cerebral circulation and intracranial pressure (Nornes 1975). Previous studies have analysed experimental subarachnoid haemorrhage in baboons (Kamiya et al. 1983, Jakubowsky et al. 1984, Kuyama et al. 1984). We review data from these and other experiments, in particular the effects on intracranial pressure (ICP) and cerebral blood flow (CBF).
