Intra-operative Reduction of Hematocrit with Resulting Brain Damage

This stock medical exhibit features illustrations depicting the pathway of oxygen from the heart to the brain during an operative procedure. The first illustration pictures an anterior male silhouette including the heart and brain. The image highlights the red blood cells carrying oxygenated blood from the heart to the brain. A second illustration shows an enlarged section of hypoxic brain tissue including a reduced number of red blood cells leading to a decrease in oxygen and a build up of carbon dioxide. A final image insert outlines the areas of the brain that are more susceptible to injury when oxygen levels drop.
