Dynamic cerebral autoregulation and biomarker changes after remote ischemic preconditioning

Takeaway

  • Changes in dynamic cerebral autoregulation (dCA), some neuroprotective factors (NPF), and/or some inflammation-related biomarkers (IRB) associated with remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) may be related to observed RIPC benefits in cerebral ischemia (CI).

Why this matters

  • RIPC—brief, transient ischemia/reperfusion at organs or tissues distant from a site of ischemic insult—has been associated with clinical benefits in the context of CI.

  • This study explores mechanisms that could mediate the benefits of RIPC.
