Abstract 1. 1. Studies of cerebral blood flow, cerebal vascular resistance, cerebral oxygen consumption, and respiratory quotient of the brain, as well as mean arterial blood pressure and the blood gases were made before and after intravenous administration of magnesium sulfate to 15 women with toxemia of pregnancy. 2. 2. Magnesium sulfate significantly lowers mean arterial blood pressure, but not to normal levels. 3. 3. Cerebral blood flow and oxygen utilization by the brain are slightly… Expand

Effect of profound hypermagnesemia on spinal cord glucose utilization in rats.
TLDR
It is concluded that magnesium is a potent spinal metabolic depressant and that this action, which is unusually prominent in spinal white matter, is a plausible explanation for the recently reported beneficial effect of magnesium therapy during spinal cord ischemia. Expand
Magnesium and experimental vasospasm.
TLDR
Magnesium sulfate did not significantly reduce cerebral vasospasm after SAH in the doses tested and there was no angiographic evidence of any effect of MgSO4 on normal cerebral arteries. Expand
The effect of magnesium sulfate on maternal retinal blood flow in preeclampsia: a randomized placebo-controlled study.
TLDR
These data suggest that magnesium sulfate dilates the vessels distal to the central retinal and posterior ciliary arteries, and changes in pulsatility index in the retinal arteries may be indicative of similar changes in other cerebral vessels. Expand
Alcohol-induced vascular damage of brain is ameliorated by administration of magnesium.
TLDR
The data support the idea that Mg2+ can act as a local vasodilator on brain microvessels and possess antispasmodic properties on brain arterioles and venules and suggest ethanol-induced cerebrovasospasm and vascular damage appear to be associated with a rapid loss of [M g2+]i from cerebral vascular muscle cells.

A Paradoxical Cerebral Hemodynamic Effect of Hydralazine
TLDR
The conclusion is that hydralazine is a cerebral vasodilator acting immediately upon cerebral capacitance vessels but later upon the resistance vessels as well. Expand
Effects of lead and other cations on pial arteries of the mouse
TLDR
The results fail to support the hypothesis that lead would constrict cerebral vessels and indicated that pial arteries respond differently to this ion than does smooth muscle at other sites. Expand
Cerebrovascular disorders complicating pregnancy--beyond eclampsia.
TLDR
Cerebrovascular disorders are an uncommon and unpredictable complication of pregnancy that are associated with substantial maternal and fetal mortality and suspected eclampsia unresponsive to magnesium sulfate therapy warrants an immediate neuroimaging study. Expand
Use of Transcranial and Orbital Doppler Sonography in Normal Pregnancy and Pre-eclampsia: a Review
TLDR
A collection of most of the published work on the use of transcranial and orbital Doppler sonography in the evaluation of the cerebral circulation in normal pregnancy and pre-eclampsia is reviewed. Expand

TLDR
This article presents a comprehensive review of all known elements involved in blood pressure control and demonstrates the important role elements play in the control of blood pressure. Expand
Excess Mg 2+ and Central Nervous System Metabolism
There is perhaps no more dramatic evidence for a depressant effect on the central nervous system (CNS) than the ability of a drug or compound to produce a state of general anesthesia. Mg2+ was at oneExpand
