Acute hydrogen sulfide poisoning. Demonstration of selective uptake of sulfide by the brainstem by measurement of brain sulfide levels.

Abstract

The possibility of measuring sulfide levels in the central nervous system (CNS) opens up many avenues for exploration. In acute hydrogen sulfide (H2S) poisoning, death results from loss of central respiratory drive. To date, however, measurement of brain sulfide has not been possible. By employing gas dialysis and ion chromatography coupled to… (More)
