  • Fever is common among neurologic patients and is usually treated by antipyretic drugs and external cooling. An alternative method for temperature management may be an intravascular approach. The aim of the study was to compare the effectiveness and the therapeutic costs of this new method with conventional treatment in neurologic patients. Twenty-six patients who suffered from subarachnoid hemorrhage or traumatic brain injury with febrile episodes were included the study and were randomized… CONTINUE READING
