BACKGROUND/AIMS In severe cases of acute liver failure (ALF), cerebral hyperperfusion may result in high intracranial pressure and brain damage. The aim of this study was to determine if near-infrared spectrophotometry (NIRS) could detect a raise in cerebral blood flow and oxygenation induced by noradrenaline (NA) infusion. METHODS In seven ALF patients (five females and two males; median age 49 years (range 20-70)) changes in cerebral concentration of oxy-(deltaHbO(2)) and total-haemoglobin… CONTINUE READING
