For rapid changes in cerebrospinal fluid volume an exponential relationship was demonstrated between CSF pressure and CSF volume in 15 cats. This relationship was valid over a CSF pressure range from 7 to 50 mm Hg and for acute increases of up to 9% to total CSF volume (approximately 13 ml for humans). Our data agree well with previous reports for the cat.(More)
The CSF pressure-volume (P-V) function was evaluated before and after cardiac arrest in 15 cats. The CSF volume change was produced by bolus loading (loading rate, greater than 0.1 mL/s) of the CSF space. Comparison of the CSF P-V function before and after cardiac arrest was made over a CSF pressure range of 5 to 46 mm Hg and for a CSF volume change of up(More)
