Studies have demonstrated that CBF, CMRO2, and CBV values are decreased in the setting of cerebral vasospasm, suggesting dysfunctional vasodilatory compensation in response to ischemia [53].
It is a cerebral vasoconstrictor by stimulating [[alpha].sub.2]b receptors in the cerebral blood vessels with no effect on CMRO2. Dexmedetomidine inhibits the cerebral vasodilatation induced by hypercapnia, thus avoiding increased intracranial pressure and brain bulging.
