Table 6. Regional Cerebral Blood Flow Values (Experiment 4)
Values (ml · 100 g · min) represent mean ± SD.
A main effect (P < 0.0001) was present for all regions except the brainstem (P = 0.61). In both hemispheres (right and left), for the hippocampus, neocortex, and caudoputamen, there was no difference between isoflurane sham and fentanyl/N2O sham. Similarly there was no difference between isoflurane BCAO and fentanyl/N2O BCAO. For each region there was a difference between both BCAO groups and both sham groups (P < 0.0001).
BCAO = bilateral carotid artery occlusion with normotension (mean arterial pressure = 80–110 mmHg).
