Mean hemispheric blood flow (CBF) was studied in 38 comatose, severely brain-injured patients following intravenous administration of xenon-133. Repeated measurements were performed in order to evaluate cerebral vasoreactivity following a decrease in PaCO2. Simultaneously, arterial-venous oxygen differences (AVDO2) and intracranial pressure (ICP) were… CONTINUE READING
