BACKGROUND Cerebral autoregulation is the process by which cerebral blood flow (CBF) is maintained constant over a specific cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) range. We have reworked a version of the Ursino and Lodi autoregulation model to derive an index of autoregulation (G), and compared it to a number of other autoregulatory models as well as a gold(More)
