Recent breakthroughs in understanding the effectiveness of brain hypothermia treatment have been brought about by rapid progress in experimental gene studies along with new findings in the areas of brain-injury mechanisms, brain thermo-pooling, hemoglobin dysfunction, insulin-resistant hyperglycemia, radical damage involving states of consciousness, management of lipid-dominant metabolism in the intensive care unit (ICU), and management of immune crises under conditions of hypothermia. This book explains the mechanism of brain hypothermia and presents advanced techniques for ICU management of brain hypothermia for critically brain-injured patients. Especially useful for bedside care in the ICU are the easy-reference care-management "cards" in the appendix of the book. Brain Hypothermia Treatment provides a valuable resource and practical guide for professionals in the fields of neurosurgery and emergency and critical care medicine.
