The International Brain Hypothermia Symposium 2004, held in Tokyo, was a forum for many of the world’s leading researchers and clinicians to present and discuss developments on the cutting edge of this most promising of neurological therapies. With a view to sharing this knowledge and encouraging the spread of new techniques, the editors have compiled these proceedings covering the latest technology and methods. Topics include brain thermo-pooling, hemoglobin-dysfunction-associated neuronal hypoxia, intensive care management of brain hypothermia for severely brain-injured patients, new findings not yet recorded in animal models, and control of hypothermia-associated immune crises. Also included are advanced clinical results from trauma, stroke, and cardiac arrest patients. The result is a volume that will be a valuable resource for professionals in the fields of emergency treatment, critical medicine, and neurosurgery.
