Effects of crying on cerebral blood volume and cytochrome aa3.

Abstract

To determine if crying alters cerebral hemodynamics and oxidative metabolism in the brain, near infrared spectrophotometry was used to assess relative changes in cerebral blood volume and the oxidation-reduction state of cytochrome aa3. Thirty-six crying episodes were observed, 20 in healthy infants and 16 in infants with respiratory problems. Throughout… (More)
