Study on SNP

Cerebral autoregulation influences effects of sodium nitroprusside on cerebral oxygen saturation.

Moerman A., Vanbiervliet V., Wouters P., De Hert S.

We hypothesize that the inconsistent effect of sodium nitroprusside (SNP) on cerebral oxygen saturation might be related to functionality of the cerebral autoregulation mechanism. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the influence of a bolus of SNP on cerebral autoregulation measured with near-infrared spectroscopy.
