Abstract

In the last few years contradictory results of the influence of reduced arterial oxygen supply on the Po2 of the brain cortex have been reported by different authors. As this could be caused by methodological factors, we investigated this problem systematically in a broader range of arterial oxygen supply. We measured local tissue oxygen pressure (Po2) with a platinum multiwire surface electrode simultaneously on up to eight adjacent sites of the cortical surface, and with a platinum needle electrode in the deeper layers of the cortex.
