The purpose of this study is to analyze changes in core body- and skin temperature during pre-hospital and early in-hospital treatment of multi-traumatized patients. The researchers want to investigate when trauma patients get cold and to what extent.
Hypothermia is a common finding in severely traumatized patients. Decreases in core temperature during the course of initial evaluation and resuscitation are common, and can contribute to poor outcomes in multi-traumatized patients.
In this study the temperature will be recorded continually with multiple skin probes and an ear-probe from the site of the accident to arrival in the intensive care unit (including time in primary surgery, if any).

Recent experimental research has either focused on the role of accidental hypothermia as part of the lethal triad after trauma or tried to elucidate the effects of therapeutically induced hypothermia ...
We previously reported that combining immediate hypothermia with immediate or 2h delayed inhalation of an inert gas, xenon, gave additive neuro-protection in rats after a hypoxic-ischemic insult, comp...
Neonatal hypothermia remains a common problem and is related to elevated morbidities and mortality. However, the long-term neurodevelopmental effects of admission hypothermia are still unknown. This s...
Therapeutic hypothermia is an effective cytoprotectant and promising intervention shown to improve outcome in patients following cardiac arrest and neonatal hypoxia-ischemia. However, despite our clin...
Abnormally low BODY TEMPERATURE that is intentionally induced in warm-blooded animals by artificial means. In humans, mild or moderate hypothermia has been used to reduce tissue damages, particularly after cardiac or spinal cord injuries and during subsequent surgeries.
Application of heat to correct hypothermia, accidental or induced.
Lower than normal body temperature, especially in warm-blooded animals; in man usually accidental or unintentional.
A method of lowering core BODY TEMPERATURE by filling the STOMACH with chilled fluids.
Reduction of blood viscosity usually by the addition of cell free solutions. Used clinically (1) in states of impaired microcirculation, (2) for replacement of intraoperative blood loss without homologous blood transfusion, and (3) in cardiopulmonary bypass and hypothermia.
