Iwuchukwu, Eugene Ramsay, Fawad Khan, Uma Menon, Giuseppe Ciccotto, Namir Khandker, Harold McGradeAbstractBackgroundTherapeutic hypothermia as a potent nonpharmacologic antiseizure therapy has been investigated experimentally in animal models and humans. Although induced hypothermia has been shown to be neuroprotective in acute convulsive status epilepticus, whether its use will translate into improved outcomes for patients with super-refractory nonconvulsive status epilepticus (S...

Targeted temperature management (TTM) is used frequently in patients with a variety of diseases, especially those who have experienced brain injury and/or cardiac arrest. Shivering is one of the main adverse effects of TTM that can often limit its implementation and efficacy. Shivering is the body's natural response to hypothermia and its deleterious effects can negate the benefits of TTM. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of TTM strategies and shivering management.

CONCLUSION: While external cooling during prolonged Zone 3 resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta appears to decrease ischemic muscle injury, this benefit appears to be time dependent. As the ischemic time approaches 8 hours, the benefit from hypothermia decreases. PMID: 32074339 [PubMed - in process]

Tremor is a common side effect of epidural anaesthesia for intrapartum caesarean delivery that may have a negative impact on maternal satisfaction.1,2 The term “shivering” is often used to describe epidural top-up tremor but it is unclear if this form of tremor is the same as cold stress-induced shivering. Tremors are identified by their frequency profiles and their triggers.3 For example, Parkinsonian tremor has a frequency of 4–6 Hz and is triggere d by inactivity.3 Consequently, in order for epidural top-up tremor to be considered a form of shivering, the frequency profile of its oscillation must match...

This article summarizes the best available evidence interventions for preventing and managing cerebral palsy in 2019.Recent FindingsEffective prevention strategies include antenatal corticosteroids, magnesium sulfate, caffeine, and neonatal hypothermia. Effective allied health interventions include acceptance and commitment therapy, action observations, bimanual training, casting, constraint-induced movement therapy, environmental enrichment, fitness training, goal-directed training, hippotherapy, home programs, literacy interventions, mobility training, oral sensorimotor, oral sensorimotor plus electrical stimulation, pre...

We have recently shown the beneficial effects of local brain hypothermia after late thrombolysis. Herein, we investigated whether transient whole-body hypothermia was neuroprotective and could prevent the side effects of late tPA therapy at 5.5 h after embolic stroke. After induction of stroke, male rats were randomly assigned into four g...

Yu AndreyevaAbstractThe influence of hypothermia on erythrocyte profile of thermophile teleost species round goby, Neogobius melanostomus (Pallas, 1814), has been studied. Fish were acclimated to temperature 1-2оС, 15-16оС and 19-20оС (control group) and held at given conditions for 5 days. The number of red blood cell precursors (pronormoblasts, basophilic and polychromatophilic normoblasts) in circulating blood has been estimated. Also, the number of abnormal erythrocyte...

Semin Neurol DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1702939Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) is a manifestation of perinatal asphyxial insult that continues to evolve over days to weeks following the initial injury. Therapeutic hypothermia has demonstrated that a proportion of this secondary brain injury may indeed be preventable. However, therapeutic hypothermia has also altered the prognostic utility of many bedside tools that are commonly used as predictors of long-term neurodevelopmental outcome in HIE. Clinicians are often confronted with uncertainty when assessing the prognosis of infants with HIE. Improved understanding of the imp...
