Cerebral perfusion is reduced after prolonged periods of total circulatory arrest in infants. Methods of rewarming after arrest may modify the flow pattern of recovery, and a single report has suggested that using cold reperfusion to delay rewarming could mitigate abnormalities in cerebral blood flow. Cerebral perfusion was evaluated by transcranial Doppler sonography in 16 infants who required periods of total circulatory arrest of 35 minutes or more. In group A (n = 9) rewarming was begun… CONTINUE READING
