A comprehensive review of the scientific and clinical studies that have led to the resurgence of interest in hypothermia as a neuroprotective strategy in the treatment of stroke and traumatic brain injury. Topics of special importance include intraoperative and intensive care management of hypothermia-treated patients, a critical look at the potential for combining hypothermia with pharmacotherapy, and an update on the latest technological advances that have made hypothermic treatment possible in today's clinical setting.

Editorial Reviews

"...a highly relevant volume for clinicians and basic scientists alike in the field of cerebral ischemia research and care...I recommend this book to most health science-related libraries, institutions, and individuals with significant interests in the research and treatment of patients with stroke and TBI." - J. Neurosurg."...contains a plethora of up-to-date and important information on both basic and clinical research. It is worthwhile to recommend as a reference book for the student, scientist and physician who is interested in or involved in the study of mild hypothermia for the treatment of stroke and traumatic brain injury." - Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences"This book is an easily understood 'snap shot' of the current state of knowledge." - Can J Anesth
