Abstract

Hyperventilation is used routinely to reduce intracranial pressure in victims of severe head injury. In the clinical setting, the effects of hyperventilation on regional cerebral blood flow usually are not known. We describe a case in which hyperventilation resulted in local, paradoxic increases in cerebral blood flow (i.e., 'inverse steal') associated with a reduction in intracranial pressure. Although the reduced intracranial pressure was thought to be beneficial, serial computed tomographic scans suggested that the inverse steal response could have promoted cerebral edema, resulting in secondary brain injury.
