SPOTLIGHT REVIEW Myocardial protection with mild hypothermia

Abstract

Mild hypothermia, 32–358C, is very potent at reducing myocardial infarct size in rabbits, dogs, sheep, pigs, and rats. The benefit is directly related to reduction in normothermic ischaemic time, supporting the relevance of early and rapid cooling. The cardioprotective effect of mild hypothermia is not limited to its recognized reduction of infarct size… (More)
