The differences between brain and bladder temperature (delta T), and the relationship of delta T to cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) and jugular venous oxygen saturation (SjO(2)) were studied during hypothermia in 11 patients with severe traumatic brain injury, of whom 5 underwent conservative treatment for diffuse axonal injury (DAI) (DAI group) and 6 who underwent decompressive craniectomy for hematoma (SDH group). All patients underwent hypothermia treatment. Brain temperature was monitored… CONTINUE READING
