The effect of episodes of apnea with bradycardia on cerebral circulation was studied during 101 episodes in 15 premature infants. The objectives of the study were to determine whether important alterations occur in cerebral hemodynamics with apnea and bradycardia and whether such alterations relate to systemic hemodynamic events. The transcutaneous Doppler technique was used to measure blood flow velocity in the anterior cerebral arteries. With episodes of apnea complicated by mild-to-moderate… CONTINUE READING
