Clinical Failures of Previous Hypothermia Management

  • Nariyuki Hayashi
  • Dalton W. Dietrich


Clinical issues of unsuccessful hypothermia treatment have not been elucidated at previously.Without understanding the clinical issues of hypothermia management, it is difficult to successfully treat severely injured patients with hypothermia management. Five reasons for unsuccessful treatment in previous Hypothermia management are discussed here.


Growth Hormone Brain Edema Brain Damage Serum Glucose Level Vasopressin Release
