These studies were conducted in neurosurgical patients to determine brain tissue nonbicarbonate buffering of pH changes during hypercapnia. Following a craniotomy, a sensor which continuously measures oxygen pressure, carbon dioxide pressure, pH and temperature was inserted into cortex tissue of nine subjects. Bicarbonate concentration was calculated from… CONTINUE READING
