An Analysis of Ion Distribution in Brain Following Anoxia
Changes occurred in two phases: A preanoxic depolarization phase and an anoxic depolarization phase.
The preanoxic depolarization phase was characterized by small increases in extracellular Na+, K+, Cl- concentrations and usually a slight decrease in brain DC potential.
The anoxic depolarization phase was characterized by wery rapid increases in extracellular K+, simultaneous decreases in Na+ and Cl-, and rapid decreases in DC potential.
