Dr. Sarnquist's contribution stems from his vast adventure with low move pass as practiced at Stanford collage and the result of the stories he played in collaboration with Dr. Fish. Drs. Govier and Reves speak about in a few aspect the overall results of anesthetic brokers upon mind metabolic wishes in addition to their vital information demonstrating preserva­ tion of mind blood circulate autoregulation in the course of cardiopulmonary pass (CPB) as practiced on the collage of Alabama. ultimately Dr.

2 L'min- 1'm2 - 1 (30 cc-kg- 1 'min- 1) during the period of ischemic arrest. After the aortic cross-clamp is removed, higher flows and pressures aid in the resuscitation of the heart, speed rewarming, and increase the transport of oxygen by the diluted blood to the warming and metabolically more active brain. Are these generalizations valid for patients who appear to be at special risk for neurological injury-the aged and those with preexisting cerebrovascular disease? Nearly all of the studies cited in this chapter limited their study groups to patients under 70 years of age, so it may be unwise to extend the conclusions to a different patient population.

However, Kolkka and Hilberman [36], in a prospective study of 204 patients who underwent cardiac operations with hypothermic CPB, found no correlation of perfusion pressure with postoperative neurologic dysfunction. Their study suggested that perfusion pressure, per se, is not the major determinant nor a reliable predictor of postoperative cerebral dysfunction in an orderly operative procedure with adequate CPB flow. Slogoff and coworkers [37], in a prospective study of 240 patients, were also unable to confirm the relationship between postoperative cerebral dysfunction and perfusion pressure less than 50 mmHg during hypothermic CPB.
