Cerebral Metabolism in Vivo

  • William Sacks

Abstract

The brain is unique among the organs of the body in that it consumes about 2.2 mmol of oxygen per minute (a value that represents almost 20% of the resting human’s total requirements) and in that it “extracts” from blood about 300 μmol of glucose per minute. Furthermore, experiments have demonstrated the brain’s utter dependence on oxygen and glucose, with irreparable damage resulting from deprivation of either or both for only short periods of time.
