Abstract : An electronic circuit which may be used to record tissue hydrogen concentrations with platinum electrodes is described. This circuit provides constant electrode polarization potential for a wide range of electrode currents and also provides a stable, artifact-free output which may be easily connected to standard laboratory oscillographs. Both in vitro and in vivo experiments demonstrating the circuit's utility in hydrogen clearance blood flow determinations are presented. (Author) 
Continuous Quantitative Local Cerebral Blood Flow Measurement: Calibration of Thermal Conductivity Measurements by the Hydrogen Clearance Method
The capability of a miniaturized probe to measure local cerebral blood flow in a continuous and quantitative manner is described. The incorporation of thermal conductivity measurements using the
Comparison of local cerebral blood flow determined by thermal and hydrogen clearance.
The data suggest that the thermal diffusion technique is a reliably quantitative means of measuring local cerebral blood flow.
Total Cerebral Blood Flow in the Monkey Measured by Hydrogen Clearance
The experience suggests that one may reliably measure average total cerebral blood flow in the experimental setting by following the clearance of hydrogen from torcular blood, and this method can be easily combined with the standard hydrogen clearance technique for measuring local tissue blood flow.
Absence of autoregulation in peripheral nerve blood flow
Normal and Post Severance Flow Rates
SUMMARY Regional blood flow has been measured in the sciatic nerve of cats utilizing the method of hydrogen polarography. The mean baseline flow of the sciatic nerve in cats was found to be 43 ml/100
Choroidal blood flow. I. Ocular tissue temperature as a measure of flow.
It is concluded that ocular tissue temperature can be used as a semiquantitative index of choroidal blood flow, and, being noninvasive, has potential clinical application.
The Effect of a Simulated Subarachnoid Hemorrhage on Cerebral Blood Flow in the Monkey
The hydrogen clearance method was used to measure local and total cerebral blood flow in the rhesus monkey before and for five hours after a simulated subarachnoid hemorrhage, suggesting that vasoactive agents in fresh whole blood and the arterial spasm they produce when added to cerebrospinal fluid play only a limited role in the pathogenesis of ischemic encephalopathy that follows an SAH.
Experimental air embolism of the brain: an analysis of the technique in the rat.
Air emboli of 5 microliters were found to arrest blood flow and to attenuate electrical activity in the ipsilateral cerebral hemisphere for seconds to a couple of minutes and varied from region to region, and it tended to be prolonged by arterial hypotension.
Cerebral Blood Flow and Intracranial Pressure in the Dog During Intravenous Infusion of Nitroglycerin Alone and in Combination with Dopamine 331
The data suggest that nitroglycerin affects mainly the extracerebral capacitance arteries while dopamine affects the smaller intraparenchymal resistance vessels.
