Treatment of this condition consists of rewarming the extremity.
He was given oxygen and rewarming until a paramedic arrived arrived.
The branched graft was sutured to the aortic stump followed by reperfusion of the lower body and rewarming. Then, the proximal branched graft was anastomosed to the aortic sinotubular junction and blood supply to the coronary artery was restored.
This is based on animal data showing increased seizures and increased cortical apoptosis with rapid rewarming. Longer or deeper cooling to 72 hours has not been shown to be of benefit, and is harmful26,27.
For this purpose, the authors have compared ischemia-reperfusion injuries after open or RKT in a porcine model and also have described a novel intra-abdominal cooling system aimed at reducing kidney rewarming during the procedure.
A 6-month-old girl was transferred to our university hospital presenting with incessant ventricular fibrillation (VF) after rewarming therapy for cerebral hypothermia.
Arterial cannulation was unsuccessful; transcutaneous pulse S[O.sub.2] was consistently 100% during rewarming. Results from the first blood gas (all blood gas results were reported uncorrected for temperature) drawn from a catheter placed in the IVC (by Seldinger technique; sutured in place after advancing to its full length overlying the L3 vertebral body; Figure 1) were pH 7.01, PC[O.sub.2] 33mmHg, P[O.sub.2] 101mmHg, S[O.sub.2] 94%, and lactate 18 mmol/L.
No hypothalamic involvement Type of hypothermia and Suspected (number of diagnosis and hypothermic References disease course episodes) [7] Death Acute (1) [8] Treated with Chronic: (1) passive rewarming. Full clinical recovery in 6 days Treated with [8] steroids, passive Chronic: (1) rewarming, hypertonic saline, and furosemide.
Closed chest pig models were described to hemodynamic function during surface cooling, steady state severe hypothermia and surface rewarming. The posthypothermic increase in heart rate and the reduced systemic vascular resistance were interpreted as adaptive measures.
