In 27 rhesus monkeys the cerebrospinal fluid pressure (CSFP) was raised by injections into the cisterna magna to about 40 to 50 mm Hg in steps of 5 mm Hg every five minutes. During the initial phase of the rise of the CSFP to about 15 mm Hg normal animals showed a significant fall in the systolic arterial blood pressure. With a further elevation of the CSFP the BP rose till the CSFP reached 30 to 40 mm Hg. If the CSFP were raised higher than that, a large number of the animals showed a… CONTINUE READING
