Cerebral fat embolism syndrome is a rare, but potentially lethal, complication that may arise from long bone fractures and/or orthopaedic surgery. Neurological symptoms are variable, and clinical diagnosis is difficult. We report the case of a 75-year-old woman who developed cerebral fat embolism four days after a right hip arthroplasty. Maintenanc...

Background: Nitrate is a precursor of nitric oxide (NO), an important regulator of cerebral perfusion in normoxic and hypoxic conditions. Nitrate supplementation could be used to improve cerebral perfusion and oxygenation during exercise in hypoxia. The effects of dietary nitrate supplementation on cerebral haemodynamics during exercise in severe h...

Cerebral vasodilation and increased cerebral oxygen extraction help maintain cerebral oxygen uptake in the face of hypoxemia. This study examined cerebrovascular responses to intermittent hypoxemia in eight healthy men breathing 10% O2 for 5 cycles, each 6 min, interspersed with 4 min of room air breathing. Hypoxia exposures raised heart rate ( P
