ABSTRACT
Estimation of cerebral flow by the use of externally placed detectors have been investigated by several authors. The flow formulas used in these methods have been derived and the problems inherent in each described; at the present none is entirely satisfactory and there is as yet no proof that any is quantitative.

    Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is a treatment modality for pulmonary oxygenation difficulties. CPAP impairs venous return to the heart and, in turn, affects cerebral blood flow (CBF) and augments cerebral blood volume (CBV). We considered that during CPAP, elevation of the upper body...
