Abstract

General opening remarks are followed by a presentation of current views on the effects of hyperventilation, hypothermy, administration of barbiturates, nootropic drugs and gluccoorticoids on the course of cerebral changes in the acute, complete arrest of cerebral blood circulation. Good results yielded by anti-oedematous medication and by drugs im-proving cerebral blood flow are discussed and doubtful clinical value of calcium channel blockers is pointed out.
