121. Hypothermia therapy after traumatic brain injury in children. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Hypothermia therapy after traumatic brain injury in children. Hypothermia therapy improves survival and the neurologic outcome in animal models of traumatic brain injury. However, the effect of hypothermia therapy on the neurologic outcome and mortality among children who have severe traumatic brain injury is unknown.In a multicenter, international trial, we randomly assigned children with severe traumatic brain injury to either hypothermia therapy (32.5 degrees C for 24 hours) initiated within (...) 8 hours after injury or to normothermia (37.0 degrees C). The primary outcome was the proportion of children who had an unfavorable outcome (i.e., severe disability, persistent vegetative state, or death), as assessed on the basis of the Pediatric Cerebral Performance Category score at 6 months.A total of 225 children were randomly assigned to the hypothermia group or the normothermia group; the mean temperatures achieved in the two groups were 33.1+/-1.2 degrees C and 36.9+/-0.5 degrees C

The nature (...) resuscitation and treatment. The outcome of treatment depends partly on the time that has elapsed between cardiac arrest and the reestablishment of stable circulation. Most patients who are resuscitated from cardiac arrest are unconscious and require care at an intensive care unit. Lowering the body temperature (induced hypothermia) after resuscitation from cardiac arrest is a treatment method intended to limit the damage, mainly to the brain, that occurs when blood circulation ceases.

130. Selective head cooling with mild systemic hypothermia after neonatal encephalopathy: multicentre randomised trial. (Abstract)

Selective head cooling with mild systemic hypothermia after neonatal encephalopathy: multicentre randomised trial. Cerebral hypothermia can improve outcome of experimental perinatal hypoxia-ischaemia. We did a multicentre randomised controlled trial to find out if delayed head cooling can improve neurodevelopmental outcome in babies with neonatal encephalopathy.234 term infants with moderate to severe neonatal encephalopathy and abnormal amplitude integrated electroencephalography (aEEG) were (...) randomly assigned to either head cooling for 72 h, within 6 h of birth, with rectal temperature maintained at 34-35 degrees C (n=116), or conventional care (n=118). Primary outcome was death or severe disability at 18 months. Analysis was by intention to treat. We examined in two predefined subgroup analyses the effect of hypothermia in babies with the most severe aEEG changes before randomisation--ie, severe loss of background amplitude, and seizures--and those with less severe changes.In 16 babies

131. Whole-body hypothermia for neonates with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy. (Abstract)

Whole-body hypothermia for neonates with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy. Hypothermia is protective against brain injury after asphyxiation in animal models. However, the safety and effectiveness of hypothermia in term infants with encephalopathy is uncertain.We conducted a randomized trial of hypothermia in infants with a gestational age of at least 36 weeks who were admitted to the hospital at or before six hours of age with either severe acidosis or perinatal complications and resuscitation (...) at birth and who had moderate or severe encephalopathy. Infants were randomly assigned to usual care (control group) or whole-body cooling to an esophageal temperature of 33.5 degrees C for 72 hours, followed by slow rewarming (hypothermia group). Neurodevelopmental outcome was assessed at 18 to 22 months of age. The primary outcome was a combined end point of death or moderate or severe disability.Of 239 eligible infants, 102 were assigned to the hypothermia group and 106 to the control group. Adverse

Mild intraoperative hypothermia during surgery for intracranial aneurysm. Surgery for intracranial aneurysm often results in postoperative neurologic deficits. We conducted a randomized trial at 30 centers to determine whether intraoperative cooling during open craniotomy would improve the outcome among patients with acute aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage.A total of 1001 patients with a preoperative World Federation of Neurological Surgeons score of I, II, or III ("good-grade patients"), who (...) had had a subarachnoid hemorrhage no more than 14 days before planned surgical aneurysm clipping, were randomly assigned to intraoperative hypothermia (target temperature, 33 degrees C, with the use of surface cooling techniques) or normothermia (target temperature, 36.5 degrees C). Patients were followed closely postoperatively and examined approximately 90 days after surgery, at which time a Glasgow Outcome Score was assigned.There were no significant differences between the group assigned

140. Management of profound hypothermia in children without the use of extracorporeal life support therapy. (Abstract)

Management of profound hypothermia in children without the use of extracorporeal life support therapy. Profound hypothermia is managed more and more with extracorporeal life support technology, especially when a patient's circulation is compromised. Many centres do not have rapid access to this service, however, and are still dependent on active internal rewarming techniques--eg, peritoneal and pleural lavage. Such interventions are invasive, and associated with inherent risk. Here, we report (...) our successful experience with an active external rewarming technique in children with profound hypothermia (core temperature <20 degrees C).
