BACKGROUND A time-dependent decline in cerebral blood flow (CBF) has been reported in cardiac surgical patients despite stable pump flows and arterial carbon dioxide tension. Other studies have failed to support these hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) results, showing preservation of CBF during CPB. The purpose of the study was to define the… (More)
