Beyond the Land of Ice & Snow: Moderate Hypothermia
The use of moderate hypothermia and temperature control in critical care is increasing. Hypothermia is being implemented in postcardiac arrest patients. Normothermia is currently recommended in head injury, stroke and spinal cord injury — although new research is being conducted at present exploring moderate hypothermia in the neuron-related diagnoses. Hypothermia mediates the cellular and chemical processes and aims to reduce dysfunction. This presentation will focus on the use of hypothermia and normothermia to salvage disrupted cerebral and spinal tissue reducing the potentially devastating consequences of the injury. The basic scientific research will be presented examining the use of moderate hypothermia in various populations. Translating this research into practice requires the Advance Practice Nurse (APN) to target interventions that impacts the system, team and patient population. The application of hypothermia will be examined using protocols and case studies. (Expires 01/11)
