Dear readers, since some of you may be interested in cerebrovascular physiology (even you Isis) but don’t have necessarily the time to scan the literature (or don’t have PubMed email alerts for articles related to that topic), I have decided to start a new section here at Le Physiologiste where I will highlight new papers related to cerebrovascular physiology that I have read.
I hope that this will be of help for you to follow that literature !
Sepsis and the brain
1- Impaired cerebrovascular autoregulation in patients with severe sepsis and sepsis-associated delirium – Schramm et al.
2- Disassociation of static and dynamic cerebral autoregulation performance in healthy volunteers after lipopolysaccharide infusion and in patients with sepsis – Berg et al.
Cardiopulmonary bypass and the brain
3- Risks for impaired cerebral autoregulation during cardiopulmonary bypass and postoperative stroke – Ono et al.
4- Effect of the adjunct of carbon dioxide during cardiopulmonary bypass on cerebral oxygenation – Quarti et al.
Exercise training and the brain
5- Aerobic exercise training increases cerebral blood flow in postmenopausal women – Akazawa et al.
