Item description for Brain Hypothermia Treatment by Nariyuki Hayashi...
Recent breakthroughs in understanding the effectiveness of brain hypothermia treatment have been brought about by rapid progress in experimental gene studies along with new findings in the areas of brain-injury mechanisms, brain thermo-pooling, hemoglobin dysfunction, insulin-resistant hyperglycemia, radical damage involving states of consciousness, management of lipid-dominant metabolism in the intensive care unit (ICU), and management of immune crises under conditions of hypothermia. This book explains the mechanism of brain hypothermia and presents advanced techniques for ICU management of brain hypothermia for critically brain-injured patients. Especially useful for bedside care in the ICU are the easy-reference care-management "cards" in the appendix of the book. Brain Hypothermia Treatment provides a valuable resource and practical guide for professionals in the fields of neurosurgery and emergency and critical care medicine.

Brain Hypothermia: Basic Science & Clinical Practice Apr 16, 2005
There are about 4 recent books on Brain Hypothermia. This one should be on the shelves of clinicians and researchers involved in hypothermia research. The chapters are succinct and well illustrated. It is very suitable as a desk reference on the subject for novice researchers. It discusses the parameters, biochemistry, management, and outcomes of hypothermia relevant to 2004. Dietrich has authored another Springer book in 2005 called Hypothermia for Acute Brain Damage which is more research based and more uptodate. The books are still quite different. The bench researcher will want to buy both, with priority on the 2005 volume. I used this book to help prepare for a visiting lecture I gave on Cerebral Ischemia: Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms.
