To clarify the mechanism of the slow arterial blood pressure oscillation seen in brain-dead patients, we investigated the frequency of fluctuations in arterial blood pressure and heart rate using power spectral analysis. The electrocardiogram, arterial blood pressure and respiration were recorded simultaneously from 9 brain-dead patients and 8 vegetative… CONTINUE READING
