Brain injury from marked hypoxia in cats: role of hypotension and hyperglycemia.


The present study identifies several factors that govern brain pathologic response to marked hypoxia. None of 13 cats exposed to 25 minutes of marked hypoxia (FiO2 = 3.4%; PaO2 = 17 +/- 3 mm Hg, S.D.) that maintained mean arterial blood pressure (MABP) greater than 65 mm Hg were brain injured after reoxygenation and long term survival. In contrast, 12 of 13… (More)
