Abstract:

Rheo- and radioencephalography were used to determine the cerebral circulation, the blood pressure in the central retinal artery of the eye, and the temporal artery to evaluate the state of cerebral hemodynamics. The values obtained in young, healthy, adult subjects for the blood pressure in the central retinal artery of the eye and the temporal artery were similar. Following the administration of nitroglycerin, there was a simultaneous decrease in the blood pressure of these vessels. The administration of nitroglycerin produced an increase in the carbon dioxide and oxygen pressures of the blood.
