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).

The study is designed as a pilot, open-label study to investigate the feasibility and safety of selective cerebral hypothermia in OHCA patients receiving ECPR.
Mild therapeutic hypothermia in the temperature range of 32º - 34ºC. improves survival in patients recovered from a ventricular fibrillation cardiac arrest. The same therapy is suggested...
Recent clinical studies have shown that systemic therapeutic hypothermia improving the outcomes in patients with ST segment elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI) received primary percutan...
Perioperative hypothermia decreases nutrient and oxygen delivery to tissues and, in adult studies, increases the risk of infectious complications (ICs). Gastroschisis (GS) places newborns at risk for ...
We provide the first complete biophysical study of surfactant by captive bubble surfactometry from a neonate with meconium-stained amniotic fluid under controlled whole body hypothermia. Surfactant fu...
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 ...
Clinical studies measuring cerebral blood flow in infants during deep hypothermia have demonstrated diminished cerebrovascular pressure autoregulation. The coexistence of hypotension in these cohorts ...
Inadvertent intraoperative hypothermia (core temperature
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.
