Effect of moderate hemorrhagic hypotension on cerebral metabolism during ventriculocisternal perfusion in the conscious dog.


Early changes in cerebral metabolism during hemorrhagic hypotension in conscious dogs have been studied with a chronic ventriculocisternal perfusion system. The mean arterial blood pressure was held above the lower limit of the cerebral autoregulatory curve. There was a rise of free fatty acids (FFA) in cerebrospinal fluid at 30 minutes after the onset of hemorrhage. The cerebral arteriovenous difference of oxygen (AVDO2), AVD-glucose, and AVD-pH increased significantly after 60 minutes of hemorrhage, while AVD-TCO2 (tissue culture oxygen) rose only slightly. These changes may reflect some of the metabolic alterations that occur in moderate hypotension.
