Cerebral blood flow, AVDO2, and neurologic outcome in head-injured patients. Review uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • A reduced cerebral blood flow (CBF) and a widened arteriovenous oxygen difference (AVDO2) almost always have been associated with a poor neurologic outcome. The literature on this relationship is reviewed. A logistic regression analysis model of the effect of CBF on neurologic outcome was developed, which was adjusted for various confounding factors. CBF remained significantly associated with neurologic outcome-despite these adjustments.
