Selective brain cooling: role of angularis oculi vein and nasal thermoreception.

We have measured blood flows in the angularis oculi (AOV), facial, and jugular veins and temperatures in the carotid artery and near the hypothalamus in three lightly anesthetized sheep while body and nasal mucosal (Tnm) temperatures were varied independently. Above a threshold hypothalamic temperature (Thyp) of 39 degrees C both selective brain cooling… CONTINUE READING
