Cooling strategies and transport theories for brain hypothermia resuscitation
Front. Energy Power Eng, 2007
Neuron cells in the brain are easily subjected to irreversible damage in minutes if it is being depleted of oxygen. By lowering brain temperature with hypothermia it can help to restrain the cerebral oxygen demands. This allows the brain to to endure reduced oxygen delivery for a longer time. Hypothermia can be used for neurological protection in several emergency medicines.
