The Protocol for Brain Hypothermia Treatment
The main targets of brain hypothermia treatment are the adequate administration of oxygen, control of metabolic substrates, prevention of hypothalamuspituitary- adrenal (HPA) axis neurohormonal brain damage, and exclusion of selective neuronal damage to the dopamine A10 nervous system by controlling the brain tissue temperature to 32°–34°C [5, 6, 7]. The fundamental plan for brain hypothermia treatment is summarized in Fig. 39. After treatment, additional cerebral dopamine replacement therapy is followed to prevent memory disturbance and vegetation [4,5,7].
