Cerebral blood flow (CBF) measurements were obtained acutely in 96 comatose patients with closed head injury, using the intravenous 133Xe technique. Arteriojugular venous oxygen differences and cerebral metabolic rate for oxygen (CMRO2) were determined in a subgroup of 66 patients. The relationship between each of these variables and outcome at 6 months was analyzed, using the Glasgow Outcome Scale. The CMRO2 was significantly depressed in patients who subsequently died or remained in a… CONTINUE READING
