Abstract: Reliability of cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFV) and dynamic cerebral autoregulation estimates (expressed as autoregulation index: ARI) using spontaneous fluctuations in blood pressure (BP) has been demonstrated. However, reliability during co-administration of O2 and CO2 is unknown. Bilateral CBFV (using transcranial Doppler), BP and RR interval recordings were performed in healthy volunteers (seven males, four females, age: 54  ±  10 years) on two occasions over 9  ±  4 d. Four 5 min recordings were made whilst breathing air (A), then 5%CO2 (C), 80%O2 (O) and mixed O2  +  CO2 (M), in random order. CBFV was recorded; ARI was calculated using transfer function analysis. Precision was quantified as within-visit standard error of measurement (SEM) and the coefficient of variation (CV). CBFV and ARI estimates with A (SEM: 3.85 & 0.87; CV: 7.5% & 17.8%, respectively) were comparable to a previous reproducibility study. The SEM and CV with C and O were similar, though higher values were noted with M; Bland-Altman plots indicated no significant bias across all gases for CBFV and ARI (bias  <0.06 cm s(-1) and  <0.05, respectively). Thus, transcranial-Doppler-ultrasound-estimated CBFV and ARI during inhalation of O2 and CO2 have acceptable levels of reproducibility and can be used to study the effect of these gases on cerebral haemodynamics.
