We examined cerebral vascular reactivity to carbon dioxide before and after cardiopulmonary bypass in 15 pediatric patients aged 2 to 9 years undergoing cardiac operations. Cerebral vascular reactivity was noninvasively assessed by transcranial Doppler ultrasonography. The cerebral blood flow velocity was plotted as a function of arterial carbon dioxide… CONTINUE READING
