Therapeutic hypothermia

Therapeutic Hypothermia

Bryan Imayanagita

12/2/11

UCI T-RAP


Background

Background

  • Protective hypothermia

  • Reduce ischemic injury to tissue

  • Invasive and non invasive treatments

  • Can reduce ischemic brain injuries


Categories of treatment

Categories of Treatment

  • Hypothermia therapy for neonatal encephalopathy

  • Cardiac arrest

  • Stroke

  • TBI/spinal cord injury

  • Neurogenic Fever


Mechanism of protection by hypothermia

Mechanism of Protection by Hypothermia

  • Slowing of cellular metabolism (every 1 degree, metabolism slows by 5-7%)

  • Can act as a neuroprotectant

  • Oxygen deprivation leads to imbalance in ion homeostasis (insufficient ATP)

  • Cell membrane made more impermeable to prevent flow of ions


Invasive treatment

Invasive: cooling catheters

NS through femoral vein

Control unit to bring down temperature (very accurate)

complications

Bleeding

Infection

DVT

Invasive Treatment


Non invasive treatment

Non Invasive Treatment

  • Cold water blanket, torso vest, leg wraps

  • Can overshoot or undershoot target temperature
