Abstract

The effects of several general anesthetics on cerebral blood flow are shown in Fig. 1. The pattern which appears to be consistent for all of the general anesthetics studied in man in these laboratories is one of decreased cerebral blood flow during light anesthesia and increasing cerebral perfusion as anesthesia deepens.
