The paper studied cerebral circulation in adolescents using a variety of volatile solvents (VS). The results indicate that, depending on the type of inhalant used, cerebral circulation undergoes multidirectional changes, among which are declining values of pulse volume and volumetric blood flow in all groups of users compared to the control group and reduction of blood filling in large, medium and small arteries, which is particularly pronounced in internal carotid arteries.


adolescent, cerebral hemodynamics, psychoactive substances, volatile solvents.
