    Cerebral autoregulation (CA) refers to the properties of the brain vascular bed to maintain cerebral perfusion despite changes in blood pressure (BP). Whereas classic studies have assessed CA during changes in BP that have a gradual onset, dynamic studies quantify the fast modifications in...

  • Cerebrovascular pressure reactivity is related to global cerebral oxygen metabolism after head injury. Steiner L A; Coles J P; Czosnyka M; Minhas P S; Fryer T D; Aigbirhio F I; Clark J C; Smielewski P; Chatfield D A; Donovan T; Pickard J D; Menon D K; Steiner, L A; Coles, J P; Czosnyka, M; Minhas, P S; Fryer, T D; Aigbirhio, F I; Clark, J C; Smielewski, P // Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry;Jun2003, Vol. 74 Issue 6, p765 

    Background: After head injury, impaired cerebrovascular autoregulation has been associated with abnormally high or low cerebral blood flow. The physiological relevance of cerebral blood flow levels is difficult to assess in these patients, whose cerebral metabolic rate for oxygen...
