The effects of breathing 100% O2, 2% CO2, and 0.5% CO2 on the cranial blood flow of the normal human baby were investigated. A mercury in Silastic strain gauge was placed around the occipital head circumference (OFC) of a sleeping infant, and jugular flow was measured using venous occlusion plethysmography. Cranial flow was calculated using formulas derived from an electrical model. In matched sleep states cranial blood flow fell with 100% O2 (mean from eight babies = 32.8%), and rose with 2… CONTINUE READING
