Cerebral metabolism decreases by 6–7% for every 1°C decrease in temperature from 37°C;
what size cannula is insterted though the 8mm graft
Unilateral antegrade cerebral perfusion flow measurements
The innominate artery was occluded at the initiation of the lower body circulatory arrest period.
Unilateral selective antegrade cerebral perfusion was initiated at 16°C-18°C at 10 mL/kg/min.
Flow was adjusted to maintain a cerebral perfusion pressure of 60-70 mm Hg, which was measured off a side port from the axillary cannula.
