Systemic and cerebral metabolic responses to acute anoxia were studied in term-fetal and neonatal rats in order to account for the greater anoxic tolerance of fetuses. Measurements of blood acid-base balance were correlated with changes in the concentrations of adenine nucleotides, creatine, phosphocreatine, and glycogen in brain, and of glucose, pyruvate, and lactate in brain, blood, and cerebrospinal fluid during 1) exposure (20-40 min) to 100% nitrogen at 37 degrees C, and 2) subsequent… CONTINUE READING
