A reduced cerebral blood flow (CBF) and a widened arteriovenous oxygen difference (AVDO2) almost always have been associated with a poor neurologic outcome. The literature on this relationship is reviewed. A logistic regression analysis model of the effect of CBF on neurologic outcome was developed, which was adjusted for various confounding factors. CBF remained significantly associated with neurologic outcome despite these adjustments.
