Carbon dioxide at anesthetic levels protects against irreversible damage during spinal cord ischemia.


Carbon dioxide inspired as a 40% mixture in oxygen and halothane protected the spinal cords of 5 rabbits subjected to 30 min of surgically created spinal cord ischemia. Spinal cord ischemia was produced in 20 New Zealand White rabbits by transection of four of the five pairs of segmental arteries arising from the abdominal aorta below the renal arteries… (More)
