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...
Conclusion: Local application of therapeutic hypothermia is clinically feasible both through the facial recess and myringotomy approaches without limiting optimal surgical visualization.
CONCLUSIONS Both methods demonstrated to have neuroprotective properties, although full-body cooling provides a broader area of protection. Recently, head cooling combined with some body cooling has been applied, which is the most promising approach. The challenge for the future is to find ways of improving the effectiveness of the treatment.RESUMO INTRODU ÇÃO A possibilidade de a hipotermia ter um papel terapêutico durante ou após a reanimação da asfixia perinatal grave tem sido um foco de pesquisa de longa data. Estudos desenhados em torno desse fato mostraram que a hipotermia cer...

Patients with accidental hypothermia without vital signs increasingly receive venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO). However, there is limited knowledge regarding the efficacy of this advanced rewarming method. We aimed to determine whether VA-ECMO improved outcomes in patients with accidental hypothermia without vital signs, using a large nationwide inpatient database in Japan.
CONCLUSION: A novel aEEG background pattern in infants with HIE was reported. The PST pattern likely indicates a suppressed background pattern and may be linked to unfavorable outcomes. Further multicenter validation study is needed to clarify its clinical significance. PMID: 31493771 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
We report results of a pilot study in patients over the age of 65 undergoing hemiarthroplasty following fractured neck of femur.AimTo establish the recruitment and data management strategies needed for a full trial comparing post-operative infection rates associated with forced air versus resistive fabric warming.MethodsParticipants were randomised 1:1 in permuted blocks to forced air or resistive fabric warming. Hypothermia was defined as a temperature of
ConclusionsRAKT is feasible and safe only if performed by surgeons with appropriate background in robotic surgery and kidney transplantation after proper surgical training at experienced centres in the mid-term follow-up. Further studies need to confirm the long-term safety of RAKT.
Conclusion: The AA infusion can be used as an alternative to FAW in preventing intraoperative hypothermia under general anaesthesia especially in places where FAW system is unavailable.
tephen W. Hwang Hypothermia is a preventable condition that disproportionately affects individuals who experience homelessness, yet limited data exist to inform the response to cold weather. To fill this gap, we examined the association between meteorological conditions and the risk of hypothermia among homeless individuals. Hypothermic events were identified from emergency department charts and coroner’s records between 2004 and 2015 in Toronto, Canada. A time-stratified case-crossover design with conditional logistic regression was used to assess the relationship between the meteorological conditions (minim...
