Abstract:

We have investigated the cerebral effects of deep cerebral hypothermia 8 C and rewarming on cerebrovascular, cerebral metabolic and brain electrical function. Results show that progressively cooling the brain to 8 C produces a decrease in cerebral blood flow and a larger linear decrease in cerebral oxygen consumption and loss of electrical function. Results indicate that even with marked cerebral hypothermia, all physiological and electrical functions can be recovered with proper rewarming procedure.
