31P NMR studies on the brains of living rabbits were carried out at 32 MHz in a spectrometer having a 200-mm clear bore. Paralyzed pump-ventilated animals under nitrous oxide analgesia were inserted into the 1.89-T field and signals were focused in the brain by using a 4-cm surface coil. Several conventional physiological variables were monitored together… CONTINUE READING
