Scotomization of physics in shunt-studies of gravitational and antisiphon valves

A. Aschoff & B. Vienenkoetter
Objective: The cerebral venous outflow resistance varies depending on the body elevation, ergo on gravity. The stepwise collapse of the big low-resistance jugular veins during verticalization lead to a shift into the small high-resistance veins. The ICP sinks to moderate negative values of -5 to -10[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
