The cerebral capillary circulation exhibits heterogenous perfusion and undergoes characteristic changes in the distribution of RBC flow in response to systemic physiological stimuli. Hypoxemia, hypercapnia and hypotension increase the homogeneity of capillary perfusion, which is thought to preserve or enhance transcapillary exchange. Redistribution of capillary RBC flow between nutritive capillaries and preferential channels may contribute to this response. Selective changes in capillary flow… CONTINUE READING
