  1. 1. Systemic hypothermia after spinal cord injury : An experimental study in the rat

    Author : Hans Westergren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; Spinal cord injury; hypothermia; rat; treatment; Neurovetenskap; Neurology; Neurologi; Neurology; neurologi;

    Abstract : Spinal cord injury following trauma results in suffering for each individual independent of the severity of the neurological deficits. Care of the acute spinal cord injured patients has developed from the purely conservative treatment advocated 20-30 years ago to today's active strategies. READ MORE

  2. 2. Intranasal Cooling for Cerebral Hypothermia Treatment

    Author : Lucian Covaciu; Sten Rubertsson; Jan Weis; Peter Andrews; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Selective brain cooling; cerebral hypothermia; therapeutic hypothermia; cardiac arrest; stroke; traumatic brain injury; brain temperature; magnetic resonance spectroscopy; trigeminal reflex; Intensive care; Intensivvård; Radiology; Radiologi; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care;

    Abstract : The controlled lowering of core body temperature to 32°C to 34°C is defined as therapeutic hypothermia (TH). Therapeutic hypothermia has been shown to improve neurological outcome and survival in unconscious patients successfully resuscitated after cardiac arrest. READ MORE

  3. 3. Accidental hypothermia and local cold injury : physiological and epidemiological studies on risk

    Author : Helge Brändström; Michael Haney; Urban Wiklund; Anders Eriksson; Karl-Axel Ängquist; Ola Winsö; Sigridur Kalman; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cold-related injuries; hypothermia; frostbite; cold adaptation; rewarming; autonomic nervous system; heart rate variability;

    Abstract : Background: (Papers I and II) The objectives were to first determine incidence and contributing factors to cold-related injuries in northern Sweden, both those that led to hospitalization and those that led to fatality.  (Papers III and IV) A further aim was to assess post-cooling hand-rewarming responses and effects of training in a cold environment, both on fingertip rewarming and on function of the autonomic nervous system, to evaluate if there was adaptation related to prolonged occupational cold exposure.

  4. 4. Hypothermia and trauma

    Author : Andreas Wladis; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Background Accidental hypothermia (HT) has been found to increase morbidity and mortality in trauma patients. In contrast, HT has been induced in certain surgical procedures for several decades because of its cerebroprotective properties. HT has even been used therapeutically in patients with traumatic brain injury. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cardiac arrest and therapeutic hypothermia: Prognosis and outcome

    Author : Malin Rundgren; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hypothermia; NSE; S-100B; EEG; cardiac arrest; prognosis;

    Abstract : Abstract Therapeutic hypothermia (TH) is the only treatment available to reduce neurological sequels for unconscious patients following cardiac arrest (CA). TH requires sedation and muscular relaxation, obscuring the clinical neurological examination for estimation of prognosis, and clinical decision making. READ MORE
