In a number of papers from our department [1, 3, 7], we have demonstrated the favorable course of hypothermia and the post-hypothermic period when the method of pr imary cooling of the cerebrum was

TLDR
Clinical experiences generated widespread interest in hyperthermia in the early years of this century, and the destructive effects of heat on human tumours were confirmed both in vivo and in vitro for transplantable animal tumours; the relative resistance of normal tissues to damage by elevated temperature was also corroborated.
A Review of Blood Warmers for Massive Transfusion
"With an animal as large as man, the rate of cooling made possible by using an external cooling circuit of blood is so much greater than the maximum rate obtained by cooling the surface of the body
Total-body hyperthermia versus primary tumor hyperthermia in the treatment of the rabbit VX-2 carcinoma.
TLDR
Intrathoracic and intraabdominal thermocouple sensors indicated that central body temperature of the rabbits fluctuated considerably over the period of total-body heating, with an average temperature in the region of 40°.
Successful storage of kidneys
HYPOTHERMIC ORGAN PRESERVATION: COMPARISON OF COOLING AND WARMING METHODS.
TLDR
If viable mammalian tissues are to be stored at subzero temperatures, careful attention must be given to the methods of both cooling and warming to equalize physical stress on the organ and to minimize variations in biochemical reaction rates.

Reanimation of rats from body temperatures between 0 and 1° C by microwave diathermy
TLDR
Having at the disposal a magnetron microwave generator, the possibility of using it for reanimation was investigated and it was hoped that burning of peripheral tissues would be avoided by the use of microwaves because of their satisfactory power of penetration.

TLDR
It was found that the dielectric heating method suitable for the rewarming of the smaller animals was not practical with the larger animals; this was because of the great difficulty in obtaining a uniform field distribution when an animal as large as a rabbit or a galago was placed between the condenser plates of the resonant circuit.

TLDR
The biological and physical factors which may limit the viability of animals during chilling, freezing and thawing, and the possibility of storing whole animals for long periods in suspended animation in the frozen state are discussed.

A simple method for reanimating ice‐cold rats and mice
TLDR
It was clear, therefore, that local heating of the heart was neither necessary nor desirable in the partially frozen hamster with arrested respiration and circulation, and the question then arose whether to restore heart beats and circulation before rewarming the whole body.
Studies on golden hamsters during cooling to and rewarming from body temperatures below 0° C - II. Observations during and after resuscitation
TLDR
The rate of recovery, the proportion of animals completely reanimated and the subsequent mortality depended upon the method of resuscitation, and a diathermy technique was evolved which proved more effective than other methods.
