BACKGROUND Moderate hypothermia (MH) is a therapeutic approach for ischemic stroke as well as cardiac arrest. Two different technical strategies of ventilation during MH called alpha- and pH-stat dramatically influence cerebral blood flow (CBF). In turn this might influence neuronal damage and intracranial pressure (ICP). Therefore, effects of ventilation on CBF and ICP were measured in patients undergoing MH because of large ischemic stroke to address optimal ventilation management. METHODS… CONTINUE READING
