This study was planned to investigate the protective effect of intermittent reperfusion in the hypothermia applied testicles.
We present the case of a 75-year-old man with repeated lower limb hematoma caused by consumptive coagulopathy from a type B chronic aortic dissection. His abdominal aorta was replaced with a Y-shaped graft 30 years prior to admission. As his previous aortic stent graft treatment failed, he underwent open surgical prosthetic graft replacement of the descending aorta under deep hypothermia. To reduce intra- and postoperative bleeding, we avoided cutting the ribs and intercostal arteries. The aneurysm was approached only through the 8th intercostal space; however, as the proximal descending aorta was inaccessible from t...
This study was conducted to investigate the acceptance of the recommendations of the German S3 Guideline, in particular with respect to the concept of pre-warming and sublingual temperature measurement. The main focus was to gather data concerning the postoperative core temperature and the frequency of perioperative hypothermia in patients receiving a pre-warming regime and those without. The study team investigated the local concept and measures employed to avoid inadvertent perioperative hypothermia with respect to defined outcome parameters following a specific protocol. In summary, the study hospitals vary greatly in t...
Conclusion These results show that the use of body-temperature and humidified insufflation gas for laparoscopy can help to prevent intraoperative hypothermia. PMID: 31523097 [PubMed]

In conclusion, fast hypothermia was successfully induced by CRRT and significantly alleviated the severity of PCAS in a porcine model.
In conclusion, absolute changes in HRV power in the first 3 hours after acute HI were not significantly related to the severity of HI. The intriguing relative shift in spectral power towards higher frequencies likely reflects greater autonomic dysfunction after severe HI. However, sinusoidal HR patterns and elevated vasopressin levels may have utility as biomarkers of severe HI. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

CONCLUSIONS: Adolescent mice self-administered both alcohol and edible THC to a degree sufficient to acutely impact locomotor activity. However, only edible THC consumption had lasting effects during short-term abstinence. Thus, this adolescent co-use model could be used to explore sex differences in self-administration as well as the impact substance co-use might have on other domains such as mood and cognition.

Garman, Francis Kim, Patrick M. Kochanek, Cameron DezfulianAbstractIntroductionBesides therapeutic hypothermia or targeted temperature management no novel therapies have been developed to improve outcomes of patients after cardiac arrest (CA). Recent studies suggest that nitrite reduces neurological damage after asphyxial CA. Nitrite is also implicated as a new mediator of remote post conditioning produced by tourniquet inflation-de...
