Inflammatory Effects of Hypothermia and Inhaled H2S During Resuscitated, Hyperdynamic Murine Septic Shock
Inhaling hydrogen sulfide (H2S) reduced energy expenditure resulting in hypothermia. Because the inflammatory effects of either hypothermia alone or H2S per se still are a matter of debate, we testedExpand
