Deep hypothermia for the operative correction of congenital cardiac lesions protects hypoperfused organs, mostly because of its effect on lowering metabolic demand and oxygen requirement. Deleterious cerebral and extracranial side effects of deep hypothermia itself calls for a reexamination of the therapeutic value of hypothermia, and has led to the development of alternative perfusion strategies. Here we describe the potential advantages of milder hypothermia over deep hypothermia and our method of a pract...
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious health care problem on both individual and public health levels. As a major cause of death and disability in the United States, it is associated with a significant economic and public health burden. Although the evidence to support the use of induced hypothermia on neurologic outcome after cardiac arrest is well established, its use in treating TBI remains controversial. Hypothermia has the potential to mitigate some of the destructive processes that occur as part o...
Patients with severe accidental hypothermia require active rewarming. External rewarming may not be successful in severe hypothermia, and use of invasive techniques is limited to regional centers and is associated with vascular access site and other complications. We present a patient with severe accidental hypothermia who was successfuly rewarmed using a novel esophageal heat transfer device. A 55-year-old male (175 cm, 71 kg) was admitted with the first recorded temperature 23.3°C. Rewarming using re...
Neonatal hypothermia is widely associated with increased risks of morbidity and mortality, but remains a pervasive global problem. No studies have examined the impact of hypothermia on outcomes for preterm infants treated with CPAP for respiratory distress syndrome (RDS).
Thermoregulatory side effects hinder the development of transient receptor potential vanilloid-1 (TRPV1) antagonists as new painkillers. While many antagonists cause hyperthermia, a well-studied effect, some cause hypothermia. The mechanisms of this hypothermia are unknown and were studied herein.
Withholding enteral feedings during hypothermia lacks supporting evidence.
Inadvertent perioperative hypothermia (body core temperature
Özdemir H, Memişoğlu A, Alp-Unkar Z, Arcagök B, Bilgen H, Turan S, Özek E. Persistent hyperglycemia in a neonate: Is it a complication of therapeutic hypothermia? Turk J Pediatr 2017; 59: 193-196. The aim of this report is to present a newborn with persistent hyperglycemia requiring insulin therapy as a possible complication of therapeutic hypothermia. A term appropriate for gestational age (AGA) female infant, was born by emergency cesarean section due to abruption of placenta and was resuscitated and...
Therapeutic hypothermia has shown beneficial effects in sepsis. This study focused on its mechanism.
We present the case of a patient with new-onset diabetes, severe acidosis, hypothermia, and shock who presented to a Role 1 Battalion Aid Station (BAS) in Afghanistan. The case is unique because the patient made a rapid and full recovery without needing hemodialysis. We review the literature to explain how such a rapid recovery is possible and propose that hypothermia in the setting of his severe acidosis was protective.
Although hypothermia therapy is effective to treat neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, many neonatal patients die or suffer from severe neurological dysfunction. Erythropoietin is considered one of the most promising neuroprotective agents. We hypothesized that erythropoietin combined with hypothermia will improve efficacy of neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy treatment. In this study, 41 neonates with moderate/severe hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy were randomly divided into a control group (hy...
Rewarming following accidental hypothermia is associated with circulatory collapse due primarily to impaired cardiac contractile (systolic) function. Previously, we found that reduced myofilament Casensitivity underlies hypothermia/rewarming (H/R)-induced cardiac contractile dysfunction. This reduced Casensitivity is associated with troponin I (cTnI) phosphorylation. We hypothesize that H/R induces reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation in cardiomyocytes, which leads to cTnI phosphorylation and reduced myo...
Hypothermia reduces reperfusion injury and infarct size in animal models of acute myocardial infarction if started before reperfusion. Human studies have not confirmed benefit, probably due to insufficient myocardial cooling and adverse systemic effects. This study assessed safety and feasibility of a novel method for selective, sensor- monitored intracoronary hypothermia.
During the last decade target temperature management has become an integral part of postresuscitation care. Within recent years there was a strong debate about the optimal target temperature, which might have effects on the preclinical induction of hypothermia. The present investigation focuses on the use of mild therapeutic hypothermia by emergency services in the state of Baden-Württemberg (Germany) and compares it to results of a prior study in 2008.
Cochlear implantation surgery has been shown to result in trauma to inner ear sensory structures, resulting in loss of residual hearing. Localized therapeutic hypothermia has been shown in clinical care to be a neuroprotective intervention. Previously, we have shown in an experimental model that localized hypothermia protects cochlear hair cells and residual hearing function against surgical and cochlear implantation trauma. Using experimental temperature measurements carried out in human cadaver temporal b...
Newborns are at risk of developing hypothermia due to the instability of their thermoregulation systems and inability to adjust to changes in ambient temperature. This risk increases during hospitalization. Education is a strategy to improve nurses' understanding of the prevention of hypothermia in newborns in the hospital. This study aimed to analyze the impact of education about preventing heat loss on nurses' knowledge and behavior in preventing hypothermia in newborns. The study design was a quasi-exper...
We investigated the association between active hypothermia and hypocapnia in neonates with moderate to severe hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy (HIE) transported after birth.
Patients with extensive burn injuries are susceptible to a host of accompanying adverse effects should they develop perioperative hypothermia, which occurs in up to ¼ of all major burn cases. This quality improvement project aimed to reduce the incidence of perioperative hypothermia to below 10% of cases in patients with major burn (Total Body Surface Area [TBSA] >15%), within a one year period.
The study aimed to assess the impact of therapeutic hypothermia (TH) on bleeding and in-hospital mortality among patients with coagulation disorders (CD).
Children surviving cardiac arrest (CA) lack proven neuroprotective therapies. The role of biomarkers in assessing response to interventions is unknown. We hypothesized that 72 versus 24 h of hypothermia (HT) would produce more favorable biomarker profiles after pediatric CA.
Hypothermia is an important complication in joint arthroplasty. Commonly, forced air warming (FAW) devices are used intraoperatively to maintain body temperature in patients undergoing surgery. However, it is believed that these convective warming systems could increase the risk of deep surgical site infections due to disruption of unidirectional downward laminar airflow. Conductive warming devices have no noticeable effect on ventilation airflow. Nevertheless, the effectiveness of the self-warming (SW) bla...
Both chemical and physical microenvironment appear to be important for lineage specification of umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (UCMSCs). However, physical factors such as the elastic modulus in traumatic brain injury (TBI) are seldom studied. Intracranial hypertension and cerebral edema after TBI may change the brain's physical microenvironment, which inhibits neural lineage specification of transplanted UCMSCs. The purpose of this study is to investigate the potential regulatory effect of mild hypot...
Hypothermia and diabetic ketoacidosis are both potentially fatal conditions, which have historically been considered to have associated pathognomonic pathologies. Hypothermia and diabetic ketoacidosis share similar pathological mechanisms, which result in metabolic derangement, with increased post mortem vitreous glucose and β-hydroxybuyrate, and are able to exacerbate and precipitate one another. Although Wischnewsky lesions are associated with hypothermia, and Armanni-Ebstein lesions and basal subnuclear...
