Effect of long-term mild hypothermia therapy in patients with severe traumatic brain injury: 1-year follow-up review of 87 cases.

Abstract

OBJECT The goal of this study was to investigate the protective effects of long-term (3-14 days) mild hypothermia therapy (33-35 degrees C) on outcome in 87 patients with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) (Glasgow Coma Scale score < or = 8).
