Rewarming from accidental hypothermia is often complicated by "rewarming shock," characterized by low cardiac output (CO) and a sudden fall in peripheral arterial pressure. In this study, we tested whether epinephrine (Epi) is able to prevent rewarming shock when given intravenously during rewarming from experimental hypothermia in doses tested to elevate CO and induce vasodilation, or lack of vasodilation, during normothermia. A rat model designed for circulatory studies during experimental… Expand
The physiologic responses to epinephrine during cooling and after rewarming in vivo
TLDR
This study shows that hypothermia causes a change in the physiological hemodynamic response to Epi, which is not reversed by rewarming, and only the saline-treated animals displayed the prehypothermic hemodynamic dose responses toEpi infusions. Expand
Effects of sympathetic stimulation during cooling on hypothermic as well as posthypothermic hemodynamic function.
TLDR
A significant depression of myocardial mechanical function occurs during rewarming following a moderate sympathetic stimulus during initial cooling and during stable hypothermia, elevation of peripheral vascular vasopressor effects seem to take over. Expand
Cardiovascular effects of levosimendan during rewarming from hypothermia in rat.
TLDR
The present data shows that levosimendan ameliorates hypothermia-induced systolic dysfunction by elevating SV during rewarming from 15°C, and is better achieved through calcium sensitizing and PDE3 inhibition, than β-receptor stimulation. Expand
Is oxygen supply a limiting factor for survival during rewarming from profound hypothermia?
TLDR
Mechanisms facilitating O2 extraction function well during deep/profound hypothermia, and, despite low CO, O2 supply was not a limiting factor for survival in the present experiments. Expand
Milrinone ameliorates cardiac mechanical dysfunction after hypothermia in an intact rat model.
TLDR
The present results suggest that at low core temperatures and during rewarming from such temperatures, pharmacologic efforts to support cardiovascular function is better achieved by substances preventing cyclic AMP breakdown rather than increasing its formation via β-receptor stimulation. Expand
Myocardial mechanical dysfunction and calcium overload following rewarming from experimental hypothermia in vivo.
TLDR
Findings indicate that hypothermia-induced alterations in the Ca2+-handling result inCa2+ overload during hypotheria, which may contribute to myocardial failure during and after rewarming. Expand
Comparison Between Two Pharmacologic Strategies to Alleviate Rewarming Shock: Vasodilation vs. Inodilation
TLDR
The vasodilator properties of LS and SNP are interpreted to be the primary source to increase organ blood flow, superior to the increase in CO, during rewarming from hypothermia. Expand
Changes in cardiovascular beta-adrenoceptor responses during hypothermia.
TLDR
Physiological cardiovascular responses mediated by the beta-adrenoceptor are significantly diminished during core hypothermia, shows that physiological cardiovascular responses soluble in isoproterenol, well known for its positive chronotropic and inotropic pharmacologic actions at normothermia. Expand
The beneficial hemodynamic effects of afterload reduction by sodium nitroprusside during rewarming from experimental hypothermia.
TLDR
A reduction in SVR alone is not sufficient to fully alleviate CO during HCD, and indicate the need of additional inotropic support, as well as pharmacologic intervention aimed at reducing SVR. Expand
The effect of hypothermia and rewarming on cardiac electrophysiology and mechanical function
TLDR
The effect of hypothermia and rewarming on aspects of cardiac inotropy and excitability in rabbit hearts was examined, with a conclusion supported by the anti-arrhythmic effect of heptanol at 31°C. Expand

The physiological response to norepinephrine during hypothermia and rewarming.
TLDR
It is shown that core hypothermia causes a change in physiological response to norepinephrine that rewarming does not reverse, and that the response to NE after rewarming was a significant increase in MAP only at a dose of 5 microg kg(-1) per min. Expand
The effect of prior hypothermia on the physiological response to norepinephrine.
TLDR
The effect of prior hypothermia on cardiovascular responses to moderate and high doses of NE is an improved CO with no affect on SVR and MAP, which could alter the clinical utility of NE in this situation. Expand
Hemodynamic effects of inotropes during hypothermia and rapid rewarming
TLDR
Hemodynamic effects of propranolol, lidocaine, and dopamine were studied in anesthetized, mechanically ventilated dogs and these inotropes appear to be safe adjuncts to resuscitation during hypothermia. Expand
Experimental hypothermia and rewarming: changes in mechanical function and metabolism of rat hearts.
TLDR
The finding of deteriorated myocardial mechanical function and a shift in energy metabolism shows that the heart could be an important target during hypothermia and rewarming in vivo, thus contributing to the development of a posthypothermic circulatory collapse. Expand
Effects of epinephrine on the myocardial performance and haemodynamics of the isolated rat heart during moderate hypothermia--importance of calcium homeostasis.
TLDR
The addition of epinephrine improved dP/dt(max) and dP /dt(min), but had a depressive effect on stroke volume and cardiac output at normal and elevated calcium concentrations, which suggests the need for careful haemodynamic monitoring and determination of calcium levels in hypothermia. Expand
Effects of epinephrine in a pig model of hypothermic cardiac arrest and closed-chest cardiopulmonary resuscitation combined with active rewarming.
TLDR
After a short 4-min period of hypothermic cardiac arrest, epinephrine may not be necessary to maintain coronary perfusion pressure around the threshold usually correlating with successful defibrillation, even during prolonged closed-chest CPR combined with active rewarming. Expand
Vasopressin improves survival in a pig model of hypothermic cardiopulmonary resuscitation
TLDR
A single 0.4-unit/kg dose of vasopressin administered at a body core temperature <30°C significantly improved defibrillation success and 1-hr survival in a pig model of hypothermic cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Expand
Different tolerance to hypothermia and rewarming of isolated rat and guinea pig hearts.
TLDR
It is concluded that isolated guinea pig hearts are more sensitive to a hypothermic insult than rat hearts in order to oppose the hypothermia-induced calcium load. Expand
Sympathetic nervous system “switch off” with severe hypothermia
TLDR
Findings indicate that the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) responds quickly to hypothermia but may be “switched off” at a threshold temperature of about 29°C, and speculates that hypotensive patients with temperatures °29°C may benefit from infusions of exogenous catecholamines, especially if there have been only minimal benefits achieved with conventional therapy such as fluids, and an increase in ambient temperature. Expand
Left ventricular dysfunction following rewarming from experimental hypothermia.
TLDR
It is indicated that cooling induces more long-lasting effects on the excitation-contraction coupling and the actin-myosin interaction than on sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ trapping dysfunction or interstitial fluid content, making posthypothermic LV dysfunction a systolic perturbation. Expand
