BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Assessment of cerebral autoregulation has been traditionally performed with static changes in arterial blood pressure. Newer dynamic methods require the induction of sudden drops in arterial blood pressure with the sudden release of bilateral thigh cuffs. An alternative method is proposed, based on the spontaneous variability of arterial blood pressure that does not require its manipulation. We compared this method with the established thigh cuff method in patients with… CONTINUE READING
