By Jörn Bo Madsen M.D., Georg Emil Cold M.D. (auth.)

During the decade, the consequences of anaesthetics on cerebral blood movement, cerebral metabolic price of oxygen and intracranial strain were studied experimentally and clinically. during this evaluate experiences of CBF and CMRO2 in the course of craniotomy were played with the classical strategy defined by means of Kety and Schmidt. In bankruptcy 1 basic issues in regards to the results of anaesthetics on cerebral blood move and metabolism are reviewed. In chapters 2 and three the consequences of inhalation brokers and hypnotics on circulate and metabolism are thought of. Chapters four and five hide the results of vital analgetics, and neuromuscular blocking off brokers. In bankruptcy 6 the consequences of different medications in universal use in neuroanaesthetic perform are summarized. bankruptcy 7 considers the results of substances used for managed hypotension. In bankruptcy eight the appliance of Kety's process in reports of CBF and metabolism is reviewed, the experiences of cerebral circulate and metabolism in the course of 9 diversified thoughts of anaesthesia for craniotomy are provided, and different stories of cerebral move in the course of neuroanaesthesia are reviewed. In bankruptcy nine issues bearing on significant and cerebral hemodynamics in the course of anaesthesia within the sitting place are thought of. This overview is essentially addressed to anaesthetists, however it can be of curiosity to these operating inside neurosurgery, neuroradiology and scientific neurophysiology.

1976b). In similar animal experiments the energy charge of the cerebrum and the concentrations of ATP and phosphocreatine were unchanged (Carlsson and Chapman 1981). In dogs subjected to lidocaine induced seizures, diazepam reduces CBF and CMR0 2 by 50-60% (Maekawa et al. 1974), and in rats subjected to ketamine anaesthesia, pre-treatment with diazepam reduces the glucose utilization in the hippocampus (Oguchi et al. 1982). In normal dogs, ICP is unchanged after diazepam (Campan and Lazorthes 1976).

In rats studied with the 14-C deoxyglucose method the local cerebral glucose utilization was increased by 15-25% in subcortical structures (red nucleus, thalamus, geniculate bodies and superior colliculus), but decreased in nucleus accumbens and sensorimotor cortex by comparable amounts (Ingvar and Siesjo 1982, Pelligrino et al. 1984). In vitro studies of cerebral cortex mitochondria from the goat show that the increased oxygen consumption that accompanies nitrous oxide anaesthesia cannot be attributed to a direct effect of nitrous oxide on mitochondrial respiration (Becker et al.
