✓ Pressure-flow data are presented for the brain vascular bed in the rhesus monkey. These data are obtained at fixed levels of vasomotor tone. Resultant flow curves are called the “dynamic pressure-flow relationships” (DPFR). In the experimental model, arterial pressures are oscillated with a sinusoidal pump at frequencies exceeding the vasomotor response lag time. The resultant DPFR curves are discussed. A model is presented to show that changes in vasomotor tone cause a vertical shift of the DPFR. Changes in vascular bed resistance cause a change in the slope of the DPFR (▵P/▵F).
