L-[1-11C]-tyrosine PET to evaluate response to hyperthermic isolated limb perfusion for locally advanced soft-tissue sarcoma and skin cancer. (1/1261)

PET with L-[1-11C]-tyrosine (TYR) was investigated in patients undergoing hyperthermic isolated limb perfusion (HILP) with recombinant tumor necrosis factor alpha (rTNF-alpha) and melphalan for locally advanced soft-tissue sarcoma and skin cancer of the lower limb. METHODS: Seventeen patients (5 women, 12 men; age range 24-75 y; mean age 52 y) were studied. TYR PET studies were performed before HILP and 2 and 8 wk afterwards. The protein synthesis rates (PSRs) in nanomoles per milliliter per minute were calculated. After final PET studies, tumors were resected and pathologically examined. Patients with pathologically complete responses (pCR) showed no viable tumors after treatment. Those with pathologically partial responses (pPR) showed various amounts of viable tumors in the resected tumor specimens. RESULTS: Six patients (35%) showed a pCR and 11 patients (65%) showed a pPR. All tumors were depicted as hot spots on PET studies before HILP. The PSR in the pCR group at 2 and 8 wk after perfusion had decreased significantly (P < 0.05) in comparison to the PSR before HILP. A significant difference was found in PSR between the pCR and pPR groups at 2 and at 8 wk (P < 0.05). Median PSR in nonviable tumor tissue was 0.62 and ranged from 0.22 to 0.91. With a threshold PSR of 0.91, sensitivity and specificity of TYR PET were 82% and 100%, respectively. The predictive value of a PSR > 0.91 for having viable tumor after HILP was 100%, whereas the predictive value of a PSR < or = 0.91 for having nonviable tumor tissue after HILP was 75%. The 2 patients in the pPR groups with a PSR < 0.91 showed microscopic islets of tumor cells surrounded by extensive necrosis on pathological examination. CONCLUSION: Based on the calculated PSR after HILP, TYR PET gave a good indication of the pathological outcome. Inflammatory tissue after treatment did not interfere with viable tumor on the images, suggesting that it may be worthwhile to pursue TYR PET in other therapy evaluation settings.  (+info)

Hypothermic neuroprotection of peripheral nerve of rats from ischaemia-reperfusion injury. (2/1261)

Although there is much information on experimental ischaemic neuropathy, there are only scant data on neuroprotection. We evaluated the effectiveness of hypothermia in protecting peripheral nerve from ischaemia-reperfusion injury using the model of experimental nerve ischaemia. Forty-eight male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into six groups. We used a ligation-reperfusion model of nerve ischaemia where each of the supplying arteries to the sciatic-tibial nerves of the right hind limb was ligated and the ligatures were released after a predetermined period of ischaemia. The right hind limbs of one group (24 rats) were made ischaemic for 5 h and those of the other group (24 rats) for 3 h. Each group was further divided into three and the limbs were maintained at 37 degrees C (36 degrees C for 5 h of ischaemia) in one, 32 degrees C in the second and 28 degrees C in the third of these groups for the final 2 h of the ischaemic period and an additional 2 h of the reperfusion period. A behavioural score was recorded and nerve electrophysiology of motor and sensory nerves was undertaken 1 week after surgical procedures. At that time, entire sciatic-tibial nerves were harvested and fixed in situ. Four portions of each nerve were examined: proximal sciatic nerve, distal sciatic nerve, mid-tibial nerve and distal tibial nerve. To determine the degree of fibre degeneration, each section was studied by light microscopy, and we estimated an oedema index and a fibre degeneration index. The groups treated at 36-37 degrees C underwent marked fibre degeneration, associated with a reduction in action potential and impairment in behavioural score. The groups treated at 28 degrees C (for both 3 and 5 h) showed significantly less (P < 0.01; ANOVA, Bonferoni post hoc test) reperfusion injury for all indices (behavioural score, electrophysiology and neuropathology), and the groups treated at 32 degrees C had scores intermediate between the groups treated at 36-37 degrees C and 28 degrees C. Our results showed that cooling the limbs dramatically protects the peripheral nerve from ischaemia-reperfusion injury.  (+info)

Myocardial temperature reduction attenuates necrosis after prolonged ischemia in rabbits. (3/1261)

OBJECTIVE: Previously we observed that a large reduction in infarct size was attained by cooling the risk region of the heart, either before or early after the onset of a 30-min coronary artery occlusion. While this is a standard duration of ischemia used in the rabbit model of infarction, it may not reflect the situation of patients who are reperfused late. The effects of regional hypothermia with a longer duration of ischemia, and when the intervention is applied later, are unknown. This study tests the hypothesis that a local reduction in cardiac temperature protects myocardium during prolonged ischemia (2 h) even if begun well after coronary artery occlusion. METHODS: Anesthetized rabbits received 2 h of coronary artery occlusion and 3 h of reperfusion. Rabbits were randomly assigned to a treated group: topical myocardial cooling starting 30 min after coronary occlusion (n = 14), or control group, no intervention (n = 12). Myocardial temperature in the risk zone, hemodynamics and regional myocardial blood flow were measured. RESULTS: Ischemic zone temperature was similar in both groups at 30 min post occlusion, but the cooling maneuver produced a reduction in temperature in the risk region of the treated group such that myocardial temperature was reduced an average of 10 degrees C between 30 and 60 min of coronary artery occlusion. Myocardial temperature in the control group remained within 0.3 degree C of baseline during coronary artery occlusion and into reperfusion. Core temperatures were similar in both groups. Hemodynamic parameters and collateral blood flow during occlusion were also equivalent in both groups. After 120 min of coronary occlusion, necrosis in the control group comprised 72 +/- 3% of the ischemic risk region. However, in cooled hearts, infarct size, expressed as a fraction of the risk region was significantly lower. Infarct size in this group averaged 59 +/- 3% of the risk region (p < 0.004 vs. controls), and thus cooling resulted in a salvage of approximately 18% of the risk region. CONCLUSION: These results show that reducing myocardial temperature protects ischemic myocardium during a long duration of ischemia even if initiated after coronary artery occlusion.  (+info)

RVLM and raphe differentially regulate sympathetic outflows to splanchnic and brown adipose tissue. (4/1261)

To determine whether neurons in the rostral raphe pallidus (RPa) specifically control the sympathetic nerve activity to brown adipose tissue (BAT SNA), thereby regulating adipocyte metabolism and BAT thermogenesis, the responses in BAT SNA to disinhibition of RPa neurons and to disinhibition of neurons in the vasomotor region of the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) were compared with those in splanchnic (Spl) SNA, which primarily regulates visceral vasoconstriction. In urethan-chloralose-anesthetized ventilated rats, both acute hypothermia and microinjection of bicuculline into RPa produced significantly larger increases in BAT SNA (542 and 1,949% of control) than in Spl SNA (19 and 24% of control). The enhanced burst discharge in BAT SNA was not coherent with that in Spl SNA or with the arterial pressure (AP) at any frequency except the central respiratory frequency. Microinjections of bicuculline into RVLM evoked increases in Spl SNA (86% of control) and AP (32 mmHg), but reduced BAT SNA to low, normothermic levels. Microinjections of muscimol into RVLM reduced Spl SNA (-82% of control) and AP (-59 mmHg), but did not prevent the increase in BAT SNA after disinhibition of RPa neurons. These results indicate that the neural networks generating BAT SNA in response to disinhibition of RPa neurons are independent of those generating basal Spl SNA and support a model in which sympathetic outflow to tissues involved in thermoregulation and metabolism is regulated by central pathways, including neurons in RPa, that are distinct from those involved in the sympathetic control of the cardiovascular system.  (+info)

A comparative study between hypothermic and normothermic cardiopulmonary bypass in open heart surgery in dogs--effects on systemic hemodynamics. (5/1261)

Open heart surgery was performed on two groups of dogs under extracorporeal circulation with or without hypothermia to investigate hemodynamic changes during extracorporeal circulation. During hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), arterial O2 tension and postoperative blood pressure were favorably maintained, indicating that hypothermic extracorporeal circulation can be performed for a long period of time. On the other hand, during normothermic CPB, the average surgical duration was significantly shorter, and marked shifts in the concentrations of various enzymes were suppressed. However, due to reductions in arterial O2 tension, the length of cardiac arrest time was restricted, demonstrating that this method is suitable for performing extracorporeal circulation for CPB of relatively short duration. If circulation circuitry can be improved, such as through the development of a surpassing oxygenator, normothermic CPB would incur less stress on the body, thus making it preferential to hypothermic CPB in most cases.  (+info)

Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha mediates the adaptive response to fasting. (6/1261)

Prolonged deprivation of food induces dramatic changes in mammalian metabolism, including the release of large amounts of fatty acids from the adipose tissue, followed by their oxidation in the liver. The nuclear receptor known as peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha) was found to play a role in regulating mitochondrial and peroxisomal fatty acid oxidation, suggesting that PPARalpha may be involved in the transcriptional response to fasting. To investigate this possibility, PPARalpha-null mice were subjected to a high fat diet or to fasting, and their responses were compared with those of wild-type mice. PPARalpha-null mice chronically fed a high fat diet showed a massive accumulation of lipid in their livers. A similar phenotype was noted in PPARalpha-null mice fasted for 24 hours, who also displayed severe hypoglycemia, hypoketonemia, hypothermia, and elevated plasma free fatty acid levels, indicating a dramatic inhibition of fatty acid uptake and oxidation. It is shown that to accommodate the increased requirement for hepatic fatty acid oxidation, PPARalpha mRNA is induced during fasting in wild-type mice. The data indicate that PPARalpha plays a pivotal role in the management of energy stores during fasting. By modulating gene expression, PPARalpha stimulates hepatic fatty acid oxidation to supply substrates that can be metabolized by other tissues.  (+info)

Ischemic preconditioning and myocardial hypothermia in rabbits with prolonged coronary artery occlusion. (7/1261)

This study tests whether combining regional hypothermia and ischemic preconditioning (IP) provides greater myocardial protection during prolonged coronary artery occlusion (CAO) than either intervention alone, and whether increasing the duration of IP from 5 to 7 min extends the window of protection to include a 2-h CAO. Anesthetized rabbits were randomized to four groups (n = 8 rabbits/group): control (C), hypothermia alone (H), IP alone for two 7-min episodes (IP7), and IP plus hypothermia (H + IP7). To compare differences in IP for 5 versus 7 min, additional rabbits (n = 6) received one 5-min episode of ischemia (IP5). All rabbits got 2 h of CAO and 3 h of reperfusion. In comparison with the infarct size in the control group (72 +/- 4% of the risk zone), infarct size was significantly reduced in H (50 +/- 7%), IP7 (49 +/- 5%), and H + IP7 (42 +/- 6%) (all P < 0.05 vs. control group). IP5 failed to confer protection (67 +/- 5% of the risk zone). Therefore, IP can protect against a 2-h CAO if the IP regimen is increased from 5 to 7 min. The combination therapy significantly improved regional myocardial blood flow in the previously ischemic region to a greater extent than either treatment alone.  (+info)

Effect of mild hypothermia on the changes of cerebral blood flow, brain blood barrier and neuronal injuries following reperfusion of focal cerebral ischemia in rats. (8/1261)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of mild hypothermia induced in different time courses on rats subjected to 3 hours (h) of ischemia followed by 3 h or 72 h of reperfusion. METHODS: Eighty male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into three mild hypothermic (MHT, 32 +/- 0.2 degrees C) groups, including intra-ischemia (MHTi), intra-reperfusion (MHTr), and intra-ischemia/reperfusion (MHTi + r) group, and one normothermic group (NT, 37 +/- 0.2 degrees C) as the control. Reversible focal ischemia was carried out in rats with suture model. The cortical blood flow was measured during 3 h of ischemia followed by 3 h of reperfusion. The permeability of brain blood barrier (BBB) was estimated after 3 h of reperfusion. The infarct volume was measured at 72 h after reperfusion to determine the effects of MHT. RESULTS: The acute post-ischemic hyperperfusion and delayed hypoperfusion in ischemic perifocal region and sustained hypoperfusion in ischemic core were inhibited in MHTi + r and MHTi rats (P < 0.05). MHTi + r protection on post-ischemic progressive hypoperfusion in the perifocal region was more effective than that of MHTi (P < 0.05). The BBB disruption and the infarct volume were significantly reduced in both MHTi and MHTi + r groups (P < 0.05), especially in the MHTi + r rats. CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates that MHTi + r has more substantial protective effects on reducing ischemia/reperfusion injury than MHTi. It may inhibit post-ischemic hyperperfusion and delayed or sustained hypoperfusion in ischemic perifocal regions, and reduce brain blood barrier disruption in the cortex region.  (+info)

Objective(s): The aim of this study wasto investigate the effects of mild hypothermia therapy on oxidative stress injury of rabbit brain tissue after cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Materials and Methods: Rabbit models of cardiac arrest were established. After the restoration of spontaneous circulation, 50 rabbits were randomly divided into normothermia and hypothermia groups. The following five time points were selected: before CPR, immediately after CPR, 2 hr after CPR (hypothermia group reached the target temperature), 14 hr after CPR (hypothermia group before rewarming), and 24 hr after CPR (hypothermia group recovered to normal temperature). Glutathione (GSH) concentrations in both the blood and cerebrospinal fluid of the normothermia and hypothermia groups were measured. Results:At 2, 14, and 24 hr after CPR, the GSH concentrations in both the blood and cerebrospinal fluid were significantly higher in the hypothermia group than in the nomorthermia group. Conclusion:Mild hypothermia therapy

The aim of the present study was to investigate the impact of the time interval from collapse to return of spontaneous circulation (CPA-ROSC) in cardiac arrest patients and the types of patients who will benefit from therapeutic hypothermia. Four hundred witnessed adult comatose survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest of cardiac etiology were enrolled in the study. The favorable neurological outcome was defined as category 1 or 2 on the five-point Pittsburgh cerebral performance scale at the time of hospital discharge. A matching process based on the propensity score was performed to equalize potential prognostic factors in the hypothermia and normothermia groups, and to formulate a balanced 1:1 matched cohort study. The rate of favorable neurological outcome was higher (P | 0.05) in the hypothermia group (n = 110) than in the normothermia group in patients with CPA-ROSC of 15 to 20 minutes (64% vs. 17%), 20 to 25 minutes (70% vs. 8%), 25 to 30 minutes (50% vs. 7%), 35 to 40 minutes (27% vs. 0%) and

Patients often regain consciousness 3 days or more after arrest. Physicians may be making premature predictions about which patients are not likely to survive following cardiac arrest - and even withdrawing care -- before the window in which comatose patients who have received therapeutic hypothermia are most likely to wake up, according to two new studies from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. The research helps to better define the proper timeframe and manner in which doctors may be able to predict which patients will regain consciousness after the use of therapeutic hypothermia, which preserves brain and other organ function following cardiac arrest.. Patients treated with hypothermia often dont regain consciousness until three or more days after their cardiac arrest, according Penn research that will present today at the American Heart Associations annual Scientific Sessions (Abstract #10778. But in a separate Penn study published online this week in ...
Enteral Feeding during therapeutic hypothermia, 978-3-659-61988-5, The basic provision of nutrition in the critical care population has been associated with reduced length of stay and improved outcome. Often catabolic, these patients are at risk of malnutrition. Government bodies advise and expect those requiring mechanical ventilation during critical illness to be enterally fed wherever possible. Cardiac arrest victims treated with neuroprotective therapeutic hypothermia often encounter the postponement of enteral feed until normothermia is restored. This is due to a lack of research evidence surrounding the ability for a hypothermic patient to absorb feed formulas. This is the first known study that sought to identify what percentage of feed could be tolerated by cooled victims of cardiac arrest during three distinct phases of therapeutic hypothermia. This included 24 hours at target temperature (32-34°C), 24 hours rewarming to 36.5°C and 24 hours maintained at a core temperature below 37.5°C. A

BACKGROUND: Induction of mild therapeutic hypothermia (TH; temperature 32-34°C) has become standard of care in many hospitals for comatose survivors of cardiac arrest. Pyrexia, or fever, is known to be detrimental in patients with neurologic injuries such as stroke or trauma. The incidence of pyrexia in the postrewarming phase of TH is unknown. We attempted to determine the incidence of fever after TH and hypothesized that those patients who were febrile after rewarming would have worse clinical outcomes than those who maintained normothermia in the postrewarming period.. METHODS: Retrospective data analysis of survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) over a period of 29 months (December 2007 to April 2010).. INCLUSION CRITERIA: OHCA, age ,18, return of spontaneous circulation, and treatment with TH.. EXCLUSION CRITERIA: traumatic arrest and pregnancy. Data collected included age, sex, neurologic outcome, mortality, and whether the patient developed fever (temperature , 100.4°F, ...
We showed in a previous experimental study that moderate hypothermia during CPB increases IL10 blood concentrations and blunts TNFα production (2). We demonstrate here that systemic moderate hypothermia leads to increased gene expression and synthesis of IL10 in the myocardium after CPB and that this is related to myocardial protection. Despite the short observational period of 6 h, which did not allow us to extrapolate the outcome of the animals investigated, a substantial clinical benefit could be noticed, wherein the need for inotropic support to maintain stable hemodynamics was less in animals that were in moderate hypothermia during surgery. This cardioprotective effect of moderate hypothermia related to anti-inflammatory cytokine balance shown here could justify its use in clinical practice, especially in patients with severe preoperative heart failure in whom pro-inflammatory cytokine synthesis in the myocardium is thought to contribute to myocardial dysfunction (4).. The mechanisms by ...
Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart suddenly stops beating and blood flow to the body is halted. It can occur while people are in the hospital because of a medical condition or while people are out of the hospital as a result of an accident or other cause. Cardiac arrest is a serious event that is associated with high rates of death and long-term disability. When a person experiences cardiac arrest,insufficient amount of blood flow and oxygen can result in brain injury.. Therapeutic hypothermia is a therapy that involves a controlled lowering of the body temperature and then maintenance of this lower temperature for a period of time. Therapeutic hypothermia has been successfully used in adults who experience cardiac arrest to improve survival rates and health outcomes, and it has also been studied in newborn infants who have suffered from perinatal asphyxia. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of therapeutic hypothermia at improving survival rates and reducing brain injury in ...

Early prediction of neurological outcome for patients resuscitated from cardiac arrest (CA) is a challenging task. Therapeutic hypothermia (TH) has been shown to improve neurological outcome after CA. Two recent studies indicated that somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) recorded during TH retains high prediction value for poor neurological outcome. It remains unclear whether TH can influence the recovery of bilaterally absent (BA) N20 after re-warming. The primary endpoint of the present study was to evaluate if patients with BA SEPs during TH can recover cortical responses after re-warming. The secondary endpoint was to ...
1Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, ON, Canada, 2Toronto General Hospital, Toronto, ON, Canada. Introduction: In reconstructive surgery, skeletal muscle may endure protracted ischemia before reperfusion which may lead to significant ischemia/reperfusion injury. Other investigators reported that low local hypothermia (local cooling at 4-10°C) significantly reduced ischemia/reperfusion injury in skeletal muscle of different species of laboratory animals. However, this range of severe low local hypothermia is known to induce capillary damage. More recently, other investigators reported that low local mild hypothermia at 32-34°C significantly reduced ischemia/reperfusion injury in rabbit rectus femoris muscle in vivo. However, this infarct protective effect of low local hypothermia has not been tested in human skeletal muscle. The objective of this study was to use our established ex vivo human skeletal muscle culture model to study the efficacy of low local mild hypothermia (30-32°C) in ...

After stabilisation of pulmonary artery temperature (Tpa) at 38.5±0.2 °C, ventricular fibrillation (VF) was induced and 10 min of untreated VF were followed by 8 min of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (mechanical chest compressions, two doses of vasopressin 0.4 IE/kg). At 8 min of CPR, up to 3 countershocks were delivered. Pigs that had return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) were randomized to one of 2 groups (control, hypothermia). Pigs in the hypothermia group were cooled to Tpa 33.0±1.0 °C with a surface cooling device (LRS Thermosuit™) circulating ice water over most of the skin surface. Pigs in the control group were kept at 38.5±1.0 °C throughout the experiment. After 14 hours of hypothermia, pigs were rewarmed, weaned and brought to the stable. At day 9 of the ...
Background: Therapeutic hypothermia has been known to reduce post-resuscitation neurological deficit and protect the cardiomyocyte from ischemia/reperfusion injury.. Hypothesis: Rapid brain cooling during CPR followed by systemic cooling reduces the severity of post-resuscitation myocardial dysfunction after prolonged ventricular fibrillation (VF). Methods: VF was induced in 16 domestic pigs and untreated for 10 minutes. CPR was then initiated for 5 minutes before defibrillation attempts. Coincident with starting CPR, the hypothermia group (n=8) was cooled by a Rhinochill device, which cooled the brain, followed by systemic hypothermia. The cooling was continued to achieve a target core temperature of 34°C.The body temperature of the control group was not intervened after VF was induced. Transthoracic echocardiography was performed before VF, hourly after return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) for 4 hours, and at 96 hours.. Results: Both myocardial systolic (LVEF) and diastolic (isovolumic ...
Stone heart resulting from ischemic contracture of the myocardium, precludes successful resuscitation from ventricular fibrillation (VF). We hypothesized that mild hypothermia might slow the progression to stone heart. Fourteen swine (27 ± 1 kg) were randomized to normothermia (group I; n = 6) or hypothermia groups (group II; n = 8). Mild hypothermia (34 ± 2°C) was induced with ice packs prior to VF induction. The LV and right ventricular (RV) cross-sectional areas were followed by cardiovascular magnetic resonance until the development of stone heart. A commercial 1.5T GE Signa NV-CV/i scanner was used. Complete anatomic coverage of the heart was acquired using a steady-state free precession (SSFP) pulse sequence gated at baseline prior to VF onset. Un-gated SSFP images were obtained serially after VF induction. The ventricular endocardium was manually traced and LV and RV volumes were calculated at each time point. In group I, the LV was dilated compared to baseline at 5 minutes after VF and this
Encephalopathy in the late preterm and term infant is an important clinical condition because it can be associated with death or poor neurodevelopment in early childhood. Stages of encephalopathy (mild, moderate, and severe) soon after birth have value in predicting outcome during early infancy and even at early school-age. Prompt recognition after birth of the subset of infants in whom encephalopathy is associated with hypoxia-ischemia (hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy [HIE]) is critical because the outcome is potentially modifiable with therapeutic hypothermia. A series of large randomized clinical trials have provided better estimates of the outcomes of moderate and severe HIE compared with the era before the hypothermia trials. Therapeutic hypothermia reduces the composite outcome of death or a major disability at 18 months to 2 years of age among term infants who have moderate or severe encephalopathy. School-age follow-up of a limited number of infants from these trials indicates that death ...
The prevention of ischemic injury to preserve both end-organ function and improve neurological recovery by the implementation of therapeutic hypothermia has been well established in the literature. However, not only the means by which body temperature is cooled but also the rate by which target temperature is attained remains an area of continued interest and research. The induction of therapeutic hypothermia to begin the process of body temperature lowering through the infusion of a cold solution intravenously into the body may be one variable that influences not only rapidity of cooling but also subsequent clinical outcome. In a recent issue of Critical Care, Skulec and colleagues compared the induction of therapeutic hypothermia by cold normal saline versus cold colloid solution containing hydroxyethyl starch in a porcine animal model of cardiac arrest, assessing both the rate of temperature change and target temperature achieved, in addition to changes in intracranial pressure.

Neuronal injury is one of the key factors in determining outcome after cardiac arrest. Cerebral resuscitation starts with rapid restoration of spontaneous circulation by immediate CPR and defibrillation and continues in the postresuscitation period. Basic measures consist of good critical care practice, such as maintaining normotension, normoglycemia, and normocapnia. In addition, several more specific postresuscitation treatment options have been explored in recent years. All therapies for cerebral resuscitation must face the challenge presented by the complex pathophysiological network, which is activated by global ischemia. An effective therapy should act on multiple pathways simultaneously. This is what therapeutic hypothermia does. Two large randomized clinical trials have proven that mild therapeutic hypothermia is effective in improving both survival and neurological outcome of patients after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Mild therapeutic hypothermia of 32°C-34°C for 12-24 h is, ...

Background and Purpose. Studies have shown that inter-ischemia hypothermia is able to reduce the size of myocardial infarctions and improve their clinical outcomes. The present study determined whether inter-ischemia hypothermia induced by pharmacological approach induced stronger neuroprotection in ischemic brains. Methods. Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were studied in 4 groups: (1) sham; (2) stroke; (3) stroke treated with pharmacological hypothermia before reperfusion (inter-ischemia hypothermia); and (4) stroke treated with pharmacological hypothermia after reperfusion is initiated (inter-reperfusion hypothermia). The combination of chlorpromazine and promethazine with dihydrocapsaicin was used to induce hypothermia. To compare the neuroprotective effects of drug-induced hypothermia between the groups, brain damage was evaluated using infarct volume and neurological deficits. In addition, mRNA expressions of NADPH oxidase subunits and glucose transporter subtypes were determined by real-time PCR.

INTRODUCTION: Innovation is a hallmark of surgical practice. It is generally accepted that a new procedure will undergo technical changes during its evolution; however, quantitative accounts of the process are limited. METHODS: Multiple groups, including our own, have recently described a minimally-invasive approach to conventional kidney transplantation (KT) operation. Unique to our experience is a structured development of the technique within the confines of a safe surgical innovation framework - the IDEAL framework (idea, development, exploration, assessment, long-term monitoring; stages 0-4). We here provide a first-hand narrative of the progress of robotic KT operation from preclinical trial to clinical application. RESULTS: Overall, 54 patients underwent robotic KT with regional hypothermia successfully. Major technical changes including selection of optimal patient position (flank vs. lithotomy), robotic instrumentation, vascular occlusion method (bulldog vs. tourniquet) and suture material
Abstract: : Purpose: The present study was designed to examine the changes in the electroretinogram (ERGs) during postischemic reperfusion in young (4 months old) and aged (over 18 months old) Wistar rats under normothermic and hypothermic conditions. Methods: The ERG responses to single white light flashes were recorded by Ag/AgCl electrodes placed on the cornea. Ocular ischemia was induced by the elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP) from 15 mmHg to 80 mmHg for 2 hours. In the hypothermia groups, the rectal temperature was decreased from 38.5 °C to 31.5 °C by using a domestic cooling pad throughout the experiments. Results: Exposure to 80 mmHg of IOP decreased the choroidal blood flow to 40 - 60% of the baseline value. In the young rats, the normalized amplitude of b-wave decreased during ischemia to 60.6±3.0% of the baseline value under normothermic condition and to 70.8±5.3% under hypothermic condition. During reperfusion, the amplitude of the b-wave recovered to the baseline level by ...
The effects of small variations in brain temperature have been tested in a number of stroke and brain injury models. For example, intraischemic hypothermia after transient global ischemia protected the CA1 hippocampus and dorsolateral striatum from neuronal necrosis (142) and attenuated cognitive and sensory motor deficits (143). In dogs, mild hypothermia at 34°C also resulted in significant improvement in neurologic function after cardiac arrest (144). Mild temperature reductions dramatically reduced infarct volume after transient focal ischemia (145, 146), whereas profound temperature reductions (24°C) or extended periods of mild hypothermia were required to reduce infarct volume after permanent focal ischemia (147, 148).. One of the limitations of postischemic hypothermia appears to be the therapeutic window. Although dramatic protection is observed if hypothermia is induced during or immediately after the ischemic insult, lesser degrees of protection are observed as a delay in the ...
Dr. Shankaran is continuing to study the hypothermia therapy. In a study submitted for publication that involves the same two groups of babies, MRIs tend to be more favorable for the hypothermia group, she said. Her team is also looking at variations on how best to use hypothermia. For instance, they are studying whether more time - 120 hours instead of 72 - and a lower temperature - 32 degrees instead of 33.5 - might deliver better results.. Donna Ferriero, MD, the W.H. and Marie Wattis Distinguished Professor and chair of the department of pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco, said it is not fully understood why hypothermia therapy helps prevent brain injury in babies.. We still dont know the true mechanism at work, she told Neurology Today. We think we are slowing the metabolism and thus ultimately preventing cell death.. Dr. Ferriero was part of a research team that investigated the use of Cool-Cap, a brain-cooling cap that works on the same principle as whole-body ...
In recent years, mild or moderate hypothermia has been proposed for clinical use as an adjunct for achieving protection from cerebral ischemia and traumatic brain injury. Clinically feasible brain cooling methods include a head hood or helmet with chemical cooling, head immersion in ice water, nasophyaryngeal cooling after tracheal intubations, etc. Under normal conditions it has been shown that temperature along the common and internal carotid arteries does not change significantly due to relatively small heat exchange surface of the blood vessels and high flow velocity of the blood. However, when the neck and brain surfaces are cold due to wearing external cooling garments, heat loss from the common and internal carotid arteries may result in arterial blood cooling before the blood enters the Circle of Willis [Zhu 2000]. ...
10 patients received hypothermia, while 9 were normothermic controls. It took an average of 3.5 hours to reach the target temperature of 32º C. In 9 out of 10 patients, the target was overshot, and the entire cooling and rewarming process lasted an average of 47.4 hours. There was a measurable, but non-statistically significant trend (P = 0.14) towards better clinical outcome in the hypothermic group: 50% of the hypothermic patients and 90% of the normothermic patients had bad outcomes. There was also a trend towards reduced infarct volume in the hypothermic cohort. Sinus bradycardia was the only complication to occur with a significantly higher frequency in the hypothermia group than in the control group. Researchers conclude that induced moderate hypothermia in acute ischemic stroke is both feasible and safe. A larger study of poststroke cooling is underway.. ...

A new study shows how high-dose erythropoietin (EPO) can work together with hypothermia therapy to help babies with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE).
OBJECTIVE: Mild hypothermia has a protective effect on ischemic stroke, but the mechanisms remain elusive. Here, we investigated microRNA (miRNA) profiles and the specific role of miRNAs in ischemic stroke treated with mild hypothermia. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Male adult Sprague Dawley rats were subjected to focal transient cerebral ischemia. Mild hypothermia was induced by applying ice packs around the neck and head of the animals. miRNAs expression profiles were detected in ischemic stroke treated with mild therapeutic hypothermia through miRNA chips. Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was used to verify the change of miRNA array. Western blot and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) assay kits were used to detect the changes of protein expression and ATP levels, respectively. miR-15b mimic and its control were injected into the right lateral ventricle 60 min before the induction of ischemia. RESULTS: The results showed that mild hypothermia affected miRNAs profiles expression. We ...
Sou SN, Lee K, Nayyar K, Polizzi KM, Sellick C, Kontoravdi Cet al., 2017, Exploring cellular behavior under transient gene expression and its impact on mAb productivity and Fc-glycosylation., Biotechnol Bioeng Transient gene expression (TGE) is a methodology employed in bioprocessing for the fast provision of recombinant protein material. Mild hypothermia is often introduced to overcome the low yield typically achieved with TGE and improve specific protein productivity. It is therefore of interest to examine the impact of mild hypothermic temperatures on both the yield and quality of transiently expressed proteins and the relationship to changes in cellular processes and metabolism. In this study, we focus on the ability of a Chinese hamster ovary cell line to galactosylate a recombinant monoclonal antibody (mAb) product. Through experimentation and flux balance analysis, our results show that TGE in mild hypothermic conditions led to a 76% increase in qP compared to TGE at 36.5°C in our ...
BACKGROUND: This is a phase 4 study of infants registered with the UK TOBY Cooling Register from December 2006 to February 2008. The registry was established on completion of enrolLment to the TOBY randomised trial of treatment with whole body hypothermia following perinatal asphyxia at the end of November 2006. METHODS: We collected information about patient characteristics, condition at birth, resuscitation details, severity of encephalopathy, hourly temperature record, clinical complications and outcomes before hospital discharge. RESULTS: 120 infants born at a median of 40 (IQR 38-41) weeks gestation and weighing a median of 3287 (IQR 2895-3710) g at birth were studied. Cooling was started at a median of 3 h 54 min (IQR 2 h-5 h 32 min) after birth. All but three infants underwent whole body cooling. The mean (SD) rectal temperature from 6 to 72 h of the cooling period was 33.57 degrees C (0.51 degrees C). The daily encephalopathy score fell: median (IQR) 11 (6-15), 9.7 (5-14), 8 (5-13) and 7 (2-12)
The research aims to unravel the mechanisms of the neuroprotective effect of mild hypothermia in animal models of global and focal cerebral ischemia, and to translate the experimental findings to the clinical approach of patients with global and focal cerebral ischemia. For the experimental work, a close collaboration exists with the stroke research unit within the EFAR research group (S. Sarre, R. Kooijman and Y. Michotte). These experimental findings were translated to the clinical approach of patients with global cerebral ischemia (The European Hypothermia Network; The European Consortium of Resuscitative Hypothermia Research) as well as patients with focal cerebral ischemia (Therapeutic hypothermia to improve neurological outcome in ischemie stroke in IWT project 2006-2009).. This translation to clinical practice has been supported by a recent Society of Critical Care Medicine consensus about mild therapeutic hypothermia.. In the near future the focus will be on the search of young ...

Disordered cerebral hemodynamics during CPB has been implicated as an important factor in the etiology of these injuries. Evidence of disordered cerebral hemodynamics includes reports of a progressive time-dependent decrease in cerebral blood flow (CBF) during stable full-flow CPB. Low-flow hypothermic CPB has become a preferred technique for the management of pediatric patients undergoing surgical repair of complex cardiac lesions. Because CBF is already substantially reduced with the onset of low-flow CPB, we determined if a similar progressive decline in CBF occurs during the low-flow state. Methods: After ...
Objective: We assessed the causes of imbalance of oxygen transport by continuously measuring oxygen consumption (VO2) during hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) in pigs. Methods: Six pigs (17.2±1.6 kg) underwent hypothermic (32°C) CPB for 180 min with 120 min of aortic crossclamping (ACC). An AMIS 2000 mass spectrometer was adapted for the on-line measurement of VO2. Arterial lactate was measured at the beginning of CPB, the end of hypothermia, before and 10 min after ACC release, 20 min later, and at the end of CPB. Results: Arterial lactate increased from 1.8±0.7 to 5.1±1.8 mmol/L during CPB. Hypothermia reduced VO2 by 0.63±0.29 ml/min/kg per °C, but lactate increased to 4.2±1.5 mmol/L ( ...
DISCUSSION. This study reports on a three-year experience of administering hypothermia therapy to asphyxiated newborns in a tertiary-level university hospital. The criteria for infant inclusion and exclusion were based on previous studies on safety. The gestational age for inclusion in the study (more than 35 weeks) made it possible to differentiate encephalopathy attributed to perinatal hypoxia from other problems relating to prematurity.17 Hypothermia is applied within the first six hours of life because this is the therapeutic window within which the neu-roprotective effect relating to reduction of cerebral metabolism, reduction of excitatory neurotransmitter activity, suppression of free radical release, inhibition of the apoptotic process and reduction of the release of inflammatory mediators is most effective. In general, the efficacy of the neuroprotective effect diminishes if the cooling period starts after the therapeutic window, but evidence suggests that the neurological injury in HIE ...

In this dissertation, two treatments, intraischemic hypothermia and glutamate receptor blockade, were evaluated for neuroprotective efficacy against global ischemia. Since the standard assessment of ischemic damage using only histological outcome reveals nothing about function, I used multiple outcome measures including behaviour and electrophysiology, as well as a histological evaluation. In order to further increase the strength of this approach, multiple assessments were made in the same animals. -- Intraischemic hypothermia induced by selectively cooling the brain conveyed both long-lasting protection against functional loss as well as cell loss. These findings provide a strong argument for the implementation of hypothermia in cases where the occurrence of an ischemic episode can be predicted before it occurs (e.g. elective cardiac/neuro-surgery). However, most cases of ischemia, or stroke, occur without warning thereby precluding the use of intraischemic hypothermia. -- NBQX, a glutamate ...

Hypothermia happens when someones body temperature drops below 35°C (95°F). Normal body temperature is around 37°C (98. 6°F). Hypothermia can become life-threatening quickly, so its important to treat someone with hypothermia straight away. Severe hypothermia, when the body temperature falls below 30°C (86°F), is often fatal. When your body temperature drops,your heart,nervous system and other organs cant work normally. Left untreated, hypothermia can eventually lead to complete failure of your heart and respiratory system and to death. Hypothermia is usually caused by being in a cold environment for a long time. This could be from staying outdoors in cold conditions, falling into cold water, or from living in a poorly heated house. Elderly people, babies, homeless people and anyone who is thin and frail or not able to move around easily are particularly vulnerable. Shivering is likely the first thing youll notice as the temperature starts to drop because its your bodys automatic defense

The induction of a mild reduction in body core temperature has been demonstrated to provide neuroprotection for patients who have suffered a medical event resulting in ischemia to the brain or vital organs. Temperatures in the range of 32-34 °C provide the required level of protection and can be produced and maintained by diverse means for periods of days. Rewarming from hypothermia must be conducted slowly to avoid serious adverse consequences and usually is performed under control of the thermal therapeutic device based on a closed-loop feedback strategy based on the patients core temperature. Given the sensitivity and criticality of this process, it is important that the device control system be able to interact with the human thermoregulation system, which itself is highly nonlinear. The therapeutic hypothermia device must be calibrated periodically to ensure that its performance is accurate and safe for the patient. In general, calibration processes are conducted with the hypothermia ...

Bruno Mourvillier, MD, of the Université Paris Diderot, Sorbonne Paris Cité, Paris, and colleagues conducted a study to examine whether treatment with hypothermia would improve the functional outcome of comatose patients with bacterial meningitis compared with standard care.  Among adults with bacterial meningitis, the death rate and frequency of neurologic complications are high, indicating the need for new therapeutic approaches. Clinical trials of patients with trauma who were treated with hypothermia have shown a decrease of intracranial pressure, suggesting a potential benefit of this technique in bacterial meningitis, according to background information in the article.  The randomized trial conducted in 49 intensive care units in France between February 2009 and November 2011 assessed 130 patients for eligibility and randomized 98 comatose adults with community acquired bacterial meningitis to the hypothermia group, where patients received a loading dose of 39°F cold saline and

We have evaluated the effects of varying degrees and durations of hypothermia, combined with anesthesia, on pregnant rats of the Sherin Wistar Strain. Moderate (surgical) and intermediate hypothermia, with ether anesthesia, were safe for both fetus and mother. With pentobarbital anesthesia, however, there were harmful effects, depending on the depth and duration of hypothermia; moderate hypothermia increased fetal and maternal mortality. The combination of CO₂ narcosis and deep hypothermia induced no ill effects.
Therapeutic hypothermia is already widely acknowledged as an effective neuroprotective intervention, especially within the acute care setting in relation to conditions such as cardiac arrest and neonatal encephalopathy. Its multifactorial mechanisms of action, including lowering metabolic rate and reducing acute inflammatory cellular processes, ultimately provide protection for central nervous tissue from continuing injury following ischaemic or traumatic insult. Its clinical application within acute traumatic spinal cord injury would therefore seem very plausible, it having the potential to combat the pathophysiological secondary injury processes that can develop in the proceeding hours to days following the initial injury. As such it could offer invaluable assistance to lessen subsequent sensory, motor and autonomic dysfunction for an individual affected by this devastating condition. Yet research surrounding this interventions applicability in this field is somewhat lacking, the majority ...

article{f8148d83-783e-4da1-816a-c12a7ad72203, abstract = {,p,The expression of the mRNAs of nerve growth factor (NGF), brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), neurotrophin 3 (NT3) and the neurotrophin receptor, TrkB, was studied in the rat hippocampus by in situ hybridization following normothermic (37°C) and protective hypothermic (33°C) transient cerebral ischemia of 15 min duration. In the resistant dentate gyms, normothermic ischemia transiently induced NGF mRNA at around 8 h of recovery, while the NT3 mRNA levels were depressed over at least a 24-h recovery period. The levels of BDNF and TrkB were transiently and markedly elevated with a maximal expression at 24 h of recovery. Intraischemic hypothermia reduced the induction of NGF mRNA, while the increase of BDNF mRNA expression occurred earlier during recovery, and the post-ischemic NT3 mRNA depression was not affected. Also, the expression of TrkB mRNA was enhanced, and occurred concomitantly with the elevation of BDNF mRNA. In ...
Adequate preservation of renal allografts for transplantation is important for maintaining and improving transplant outcomes. There are two prevalent methods: hypothermic machine perfusion and static cold storage. The preferred method of storage, however, remains controversial. The objective was to review systematically the evidence comparing outcomes from these two modalities. ...
Treatment of mild Hypothermia - rewarm as soon as possible by any convenient means (eat, drink, put on more clothes, run around)!. Profound Hypothermia - this is a medical emergency. Your body temperature has fallen below 90F (32C) and you are incapable of rewarming yourself. At this stage your brain begins to cool and ceases to function normally. You are at risk of ventricle fibrillation (i.e., heart attack) if your friends rough handle you, re-warm you too quickly or cause you to physically exert yourself! Dont let yourself get this cold!. Frostbite - the freezing of body tissue. Frostbite is caused by sub-freezing temperatures in combination with vasoconstriction - reduced circulation to the extremities. Dehydration, certain drugs (including caffeine, nicotine and THC), hypothermia, and constrictive (tight) clothing or boots, and genetic disposition all contribute to poor circulation.. Avoid contact with metal objects and liquids such as fuels and alcohol that are super cooled (below ...
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the value of continuous electroencephalography in early prognostication in patients treated with hypothermia after cardiac arrest.. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study.. SETTING: Medical intensive care unit.. PATIENTS: Sixty patients admitted to the intensive care unit for therapeutic hypothermia after cardiac arrest.. INTERVENTION: None.. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: In all patients, continuous electroencephalogram and daily somatosensory evoked potentials were recorded during the first 5 days of admission or until intensive care unit discharge. Neurological outcomes were based on each patients best achieved Cerebral Performance Category score within 6 months. Twenty-seven of 56 patients (48%) achieved good neurological outcome (Cerebral Performance Category score 1-2).At 12 hrs after resuscitation, 43% of the patients with good neurological outcome showed continuous, diffuse slow electroencephalogram rhythms, whereas this was never observed in patients with poor ...
Postoperative hypothermia increases the incidence of ischaemic cardiac events in patients at risk, but the underlying mechanism is unclear. One possibility is increased cardiac work related to the sympathoneural or adrenomedullary hormonal responses. In awake human volunteers, the present study assessed the effects of mild core hypothermia on these responses, and on the associated changes in indices of cardiac work. A total of 11healthy men were studied on two separate days. On one day, core temperature (Tc) was decreased by the intravenous infusion of cold normal saline (4°C; 60ml/kg over 30min) through a central venous catheter. On the other day (normothermic control), warm normal saline (37°C; 60ml/kg over 30min) was given intravenously. Transthoracic echocardiograms, the sympathoneural response (noradrenaline) and the adrenomedullary response (adrenaline) were evaluated before, during and after the intravenous infusions. Echocardiography was used to measure left ventricular function and ...
We performed a prospective observational (noninterventional) study of hypothermia blanket use in a population of adult intensive care unit patients with body temperatures of ⩾102.5°F. Thirty-nine of ninety-four febrile episodes (in 83 patients) were treated with hypothermia blankets. Logistic regression revealed that the strongest independent predictors of hypothermia blanket use were a temperature of ⩾103.5°F (odds ratio [OR] = 17), mechanical ventilation (OR = 25), and acute central nervous system illness (OR = 7.5). Hospitalization in the medical intensive care unit was strongly associated with avoidance of this therapy (OR = 0.023). Treatment with a hypothermia blanket was ordered by a physician in only 15% of cases. The mean cooling rate was the same (0.028°F/h) for blanket-treated and control patients. Multivariate Cox regression and factorial and repeated measures of analysis of variance revealed that blanket treatment was not more effective than other cooling methods. However, ...
Deep hypothermia, which is used during thoracic aortic surgery for neuroprotection, is associated with coagulation abnormalities in animal and in vitro models. However, there is a paucity of data regarding the impact of deep hypothermia duration on perioperative bleeding. The objective of the current study was to examine the relationship between the duration of deep hypothermia and perioperative bleeding. A retrospective review of 507 consecutive thoracic aortic surgery patients who had surgery with deep hypothermic circulatory arrest was performed. The degree of bleeding and coagulopathy was estimated using perioperative transfusion. Log linear modeling with Poisson regression was used to analyze the relationship between deep hypothermia duration and perioperative bleeding, while controlling for other preselected variables. There was a significant association between deep hypothermia duration and RBC transfusion (P = 0.001). There was no significant association between deep hypothermia duration ...
The results of this investigation demonstrate that a 2°C to 3°C reduction in intraischemic brain temperature is associated with potentially important alterations in ischemic brain metabolism and subsequent partial neuroprotection in comparison to animals studied under normothermic conditions. As indicated by the group effect, intraischemic modest hypothermia resulted in higher pHi values consistently during ischemia and for at least 30 minutes after ischemia compared with normothermic animals. Although the magnitude of difference in pHi between groups is in the order of 0.15 to 0.20 pH units, the persistence of this finding during an interval of approximately 45 minutes may be critical in attenuating potential adverse effects of brain acidosis. Among animals of both groups, clinical and histological evidence of brain injury were associated with more severe intraischemic acidosis. The results suggest that brain acidosis may be critical in the pathogenesis of neonatal ischemic brain damage, and ...
Hypothermia and frostbite are significant dangers when cold temperatures set in. The two conditions are somewhat related, but have different symptoms. Its important to know the warning signs for both, and the steps you can take to prevent and treat them. Hypothermia Hypothermia is the condition in which your core body temperature falls below what it needs to be at in order to function properly. The average body temperature of humans is around 98.6 degrees F. When you are exposed to cold temperatures, your body loses more heat than it can produce, which makes your nervous system, heart, and other organs not function properly. If the body falls below 95 degrees F, medical attention is needed. The signs of hypothermia include shivering, mental confusion, exhaustion, slurred speech, low energy, pale skin, a lowering heart and respiratory rate, and more. If you see anyone experiencing any of these, take their temperature. If it is below 95 degrees F, seek medical attention immediately. If medical care is
An Hypothermia is defined as a decrease in core temperature below 35 degrees C. The well-described deleterious effects of accidental hypothermia on outcome in multiple-trauma patients contrast the beneficial effect of controlled hypothermia on organ function during ischemia in elective surgery. Experimental studies have shown that induced hypothermia during hemorrhagic shock might have beneficial effects on outcome. The beneficial effects of induced hypothermia appear to be partly mediated by the prolongation of the golden hour with prevention of hypoxic organ dysfunction. However, hypothermia also has been thought to have an impact on the immunologic response after trauma and elective surgery. Induction of hypothermia seems to decrease the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines believed to influence distant organ damage positively, and is mediated by the interaction of polymorphonuclear leucocytes (PMNL) and capillary endothelial cells. Nevertheless, the incidence of posttraumatic infectious ...
Inadvertent perioperative hypothermia is a phenomenon that can occur as a result of the suppression of the central mechanisms of temperature regulation due to anaesthesia, and of prolonged exposure of large surfaces of skin to cold temperatures in operating rooms. Inadvertent perioperative hypothermia has been associated with clinical complications such as surgical site infection and wound-healing delay, increased bleeding or cardiovascular events. One of the most frequently used techniques to prevent inadvertent perioperative hypothermia is active body surface warming systems (ABSW), which generate heat mechanically (heating of air, water or gels) that is transferred to the patient via skin contact. To assess the effectiveness of pre- or intraoperative active body surface warming systems (ABSW), or both, to prevent perioperative complications from unintended hypothermia during surgery in adults. We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL; Issue 9, 2015); MEDLINE ...
Frostbite is a severe reaction to cold exposure that can permanently damage its victims. A loss of feeling and a white or pale appearance in fingers, toes, or nose and ear lobes are symptoms of frostbite.. Hypothermia is a condition brought on when the body temperature drops to less than 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Symptoms of hypothermia include uncontrollable shivering, slow speech, memory lapses, frequent stumbling, drowsiness, and exhaustion.. If frostbite or hypothermia is suspected, begin warming the person slowly and seek immediate medical assistance. Warm the persons trunk first. Use your own body heat to help. Arms and legs should be warmed last because stimulation of the limbs can drive cold blood toward the heart and lead to heart failure.. Put person in dry clothing and wrap their entire body in a blanket.. Never give a frostbite or hypothermia victim something with caffeine in it (like coffee or tea) or alcohol. Caffeine, a stimulant, can cause the heart to beat faster and hasten the ...
Four hours and 13 minutes into the January race, Dixon suffered a seizure just 25 yards from the finish line. A medical team rushed her off the course, and she was taken to St. Lukes Episcopal Hospital by Life Flight. On Tuesday evening at Memorial Park, in front of her running buddies and TV cameras, Dixon ran those last 25 yards. When Dixon went into cardiac arrest, race officials notified Mulvihill that one of his team members was hospitalized. At St. Lukes, doctors used hypothermia treatment to lower her body temperature and prevent brain damage. Dixon was diagnosed with a congenital coronary anomaly; the left main artery pumping blood to her heart was on the wrong side.
You can survive in 78deg water for a very long time, and most of the people on board swam to the shore quite quickly, and the rescuers came on the scene promptly.. Some people can survive in 78F water for a prolonged period of time, while other people in poor physical condition and/or having just suffered physical trauma often may not. The SST (Sea Surface Temperature) of 77-78°F was low enough to eventually bring about a lowering of body core temperature to the range for mild hypothermia at 90-95°F, moderate hypothermia at 82-90°F, or even severe hypothermia at 68-82°F. Trauma suffered when the aircraft ditched in the sea could very well have contributed to a more rapid onset of hypothermia as the heart rate, blood pressure, and respiratory rated dropped. Under such conditions, especially in the presence of aggravated hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia, you can see heart problems become a risk for fatality.. It is untrue to say, most of the people on board swam to the shore quite quickly. ...
OBJECTIVE Selective antegrade cerebral perfusion (SACP) seems to be associated with a better outcome compared to hypothermic circulatory arrest (HCA) alone. This study was undertaken to evaluate the influence of different SACP temperatures on the neurological integrity. METHODS Twenty-six pigs were included in the study and assigned to 100 min HCA at 20 degrees C body temperature without (n = 6) or with either 10 degrees C (n = 6), 20 degrees C (n = 7) or 30 degrees C (n = 7) of SACP. Haemodynamics, metabolics and neurophysiology (EEG, SSEP, ICP, sagittal sinus saturation) were monitored. Animals were sacrified 4h after reperfusion and brains perfused for histological and molecular genetic assessment. RESULTS There were no clinically relevant differences in haemodynamics between groups. The rise in ICP during SACP was significantly more marked in the 30 degrees C group (p | 0.05) and remained high during the entire experiment. In the 10 degrees C group the rise in ICP was postponed, but increased
The anaesthetic records of 1525 dogs were examined to determine the prevalence of postanaesthetic hypothermia, its clinical predictors and consequences. Temperature was recorded throughout the anaesthesia. At the end of the procedure, details coded in were: hyperthermia (,39.50°C), normothermia (38.50°C-39.50°C), slight (38.49°C-36.50°C), moderate (36.49°C-34.00°C) and severe hypothermia (,34.00°C). Statistical analysis consisted of multiple regression to identify the factors that are associated with the temperature at the end of the procedure. Before premedication, the temperature was 38.7 ± 0.6°C (mean ± sd). At 60, 120 and 180 minutes from induction, the temperature was 36.7 ± 1.3°C, 36.1 ± 1.4°C and 35.8 ± 1.5°C, respectively. The prevalence of hypothermia was: slight, 51.5 per cent (95 per cent CI 49.0 to 54.0 per cent); moderate, 29.3 per cent (27.1-31.7 per cent) and severe: 2.8% (2.0-3.7%). The variables that associated with a decrease in the temperature recorded at the ...
Any victim pulled from cold water should be treated for hypothermia - this is the very dangerous and important stage of survival which is a result of cold water immersion. At this point, you should seek trained medical treatment immediately. Symptoms of hypothermia may include intense shivering, loss of coordination, mental confusion, cold and blue (cyanotic) skin, weak pulse, uncontrolled breathing, irregular heartbeat, and enlarged pupils. Once shivering stops, core body temperature begins to drop critically. Try to prevent body cooling and get the victim to a medical facility immediately.. ...
We ve all used ice packs on sprains, strains and stings to alleviate discomfort. Cryotherapy in one form or another has probably existed since early humans first encountered snow and ice. Documents from ancient Egypt report the use of medicinal cold therapy. Battlefield surgeons under Napoleon used cold to anesthetize limbs prior to amputation. Intentional systemic hypothermia or therapeutic hypothermia was first documented in modern times in 1943. Dr. Fay described human refrigeration as a treatment to slow rapidly spreading cancer cells and control pain.
IDENTIFYING HYPOTHERMIA When it is exposed to cold, the body kicks into action to produce heat. It does this by the use of muscle actions as the core cools. Muscles shiver to produce heat and are a warning that you need to warm up. As hypothermia worsens, more symptoms will become apparent. Aside from shivering, the most noticeable symptoms of hypothermia will be related to mental status. The person might appear confused, uncoordinated and lethargic.. The victims speech becomes slurred, and they often appear uninterested in helping themselves. All this occurs as a result of the effect of cooling temperatures on the brain: The colder the body core gets, the slower the brain works. Other organs begin to shut down, and the victim loses consciousness. Any unconscious person you find exposed to cold weather should be considered hypothermic until proven otherwise.. Cold-related tissue effects also include local damage, such as frostbite. Frostbite affects areas such as the fingers, toes, nose, ...

The purpose of this study was to determine the relative contributions of acidosis and hypothermia to coagulopathy, as measured by current standard bedside and clinical laboratory analyses (i.e., bleeding time and prothrombin time). In addition, we investigated possible mechanisms of these effects using a modified prothrombin time test, thromboelastography, and thrombin kinetics analyses. An improved understanding of coagulopathy should facilitate hemorrhage control. Methods: Twenty-four pigs were randomly allocated into normal (pH, 7.4; 39°C), acidotic (pH, 7.1; 39°C), ...

A symptom (from Greek σύμπτωμα, "accident, misfortune, that which befalls",[1] from συμπίπτω, "I befall", from συν- "together, with" and πίπτω, "I fall") is a departure from normal function or feeling which is apparent to a patient, reflecting the presence of an unusual state, or of a disease. A symptom can be subjective or objective. Tiredness is a subjective symptom whereas cough or fever are objective symptoms.[2] In contrast to a symptom, a sign is a clue to a disease elicited by an examiner or a doctor.[3] For example, paresthesia is a symptom (only the person experiencing it can directly observe their own tingling feeling), whereas erythema is a sign (anyone can confirm that the skin is redder than usual). Symptoms and signs are often nonspecific, but often combinations of them are at least suggestive of certain diagnoses, helping to narrow down what may be wrong. In other cases they are specific even to the point of being pathognomonic. The term is sometimes also ...
