abstract

  • Spinal cord blood flow (SCBF) is an important physiological variable that may undergo changes following cord injury. We measured SCBF in healthy dogs whose cord had been cooled, a technique that is useful for treating spinal cord injured patients. A microcomputerized system developed for efficient recording of SCBF on-line is described in this paper.
