BACKGROUND/AIMS In patients with acute liver failure loss of cerebral blood flow autoregulation may result from cerebral vasodilatation. Since arterial hypocapnia induces cerebral vasoconstriction, we investigated whether cerebral blood flow autoregulation could be reestablished by mechanical hyperventilation. METHODS Seven consecutive patients (median age 45, range 30-50 years) with acute liver failure and hepatic encephalopathy stage IV entered the study. They were all maintained on… CONTINUE READING
