Hypothermia has been shown to cause coagulation abnormalities, primarily related to platelet dysfunction. We reviewed coagulation function and the incidence of delayed traumatic intracerebral hemorrhage in a series of 36 patients with severe head injuries (Glasgow Coma Scale 3-7) enrolled in a prospective, randomized, clinical trial of therapeutic moderate hypothermia. Patients were randomized to a normothermic group (n = 16) or to a group cooled to 32 to 33 degrees C within 6 hours of injury… CONTINUE READING
