Twenty-four cats were divided into two groups and treated with an intravenous infusion of either fluosol DA or dextran. One-half of the animals in each group were ventilated with room air and one-half with 100% oxygen. The right middle cerebral artery was occluded for a period of 4 hours through a transorbital approach. Regional blood flow by the hydrogen clearance method was measured before and after the infusion of fluosol DA or dextran, after oxygenation in the animals on 100% oxygen, three… CONTINUE READING
