Abstract

Using a reliable and reproducible microelectrode technique, consistent simultaneous measurements of local spinal cord blood flow (SCBF), tissue oxygen tension, and tissue oxygen consumption were made at cervical, thoracic, and lumbar levels in the rat spinal cord. These observations showed that the metabolic state is maintained constant along the cord, despite significant variations in vasculature. The physiological and anatomical aspects of these findings are discussed.
