Mechanisms of Benefit Energy failure Energy failure Oxidant injury Oxidant injury Delayed neuronal death Delayed neuronal death Excitotoxicity Excitotoxicity ICP ICP Edema formation Edema formation Cytoskeletal protein degradation Cytoskeletal protein degradation BBB permeability BBB permeability IL-1 production IL-1 production Neutrophil accumulation Neutrophil accumulation Who cares?
Predisposition in Trauma Patients Exposure (field and trauma bay) Exposure (field and trauma bay) –Opening of body cavities Blood loss Blood loss Infusion of cold fluids Infusion of cold fluids Limited heat production Limited heat production –Shock –Sedation, anesthesia, EtOH and drugs
Moderate hypothermia and HS Meyer and Horton, Curr Surg, 1988.
Time (min) % surviving Hth Group 2 O2-Hth Group 4 O2 Group 3 Control Group 1 Kim, et al. J Trauma, 1998.
Number of rats alive Time Prolonged Hypothermia Group 3 Brief Hypothermia Group 2 Normothermia Group 1 (9/10) (7/10) (3/10) p = 0.02 vs. Group 3; p = 0.18 vs. Group 2 Survival from Pressure-controlled HS Prueckner, J Trauma, 2001.

Hypothermia is a double-edged sword.
Hypothermia and Trauma High ISS High ISS –Hypothermia –Decreased shivering, thermoregulation, heat production Coagulopathy and acidosis Coagulopathy and acidosis –"Damage control laparotomy"
Hypothermia - complications Coagulopathy Coagulopathy –Platelets - number and function, TxB2 –Elevated PT and PTT –?Increased fibrinolysis Dysrhythmias and hypotension Dysrhythmias and hypotension Metabolic acidosis Metabolic acidosis Infections Infections
Preclinical Pig Study Pressure-controlled HS Pressure-controlled HS Hemodilution Hemodilution Normothermia vs hypothermia (34 o C) Normothermia vs hypothermia (34 o C) Laparotomy Laparotomy –Excise edge of liver –Measure blood loss Coags, platelets, TEG, ACT Coags, platelets, TEG, ACT Wu, in preparation.

Hypothermia and Trauma Luna, et al (U of Washington) Luna, et al (U of Washington) –T>36 o C (n=32): ISS 28, survival 78% –T=34-36 o C (n=41): ISS 29, survival 59% –T<34 o C (n=21): ISS 36, survival 41% Jurkovich, et al (U of South Alabama) Jurkovich, et al (U of South Alabama) –ISS >33 o C: survival 97% >33 o C: survival 97% <33 o C: survival 50% <33 o C: survival 50% J Trauma, 1987.
Hypothermia and TRISS UCSD UCSD 173 with ISS >9 and known core temp 173 with ISS >9 and known core temp Hypothermic pt: n=37 Hypothermic pt: n=37 –More hypotensive –Survival as predicted by TRISS –No difference in ICU days for survivors Steinemann, J Trauma, 1990.
Prospective Hypothermia Study Harborview Medical Center, Seattle Harborview Medical Center, Seattle Core temp <34.5 o C and PAC needed Core temp <34.5 o C and PAC needed Standard Tx Standard Tx –Warm fluids, gases, air blanket, hat Treatment Treatment –Continuous arteriovenous rewarming Gentilello, et al. Ann Surg, 1997.
Continuous arteriovenous rewarming technique. Gentilello, et al Ann Surg, 1997.
Prospective Hypothermia Study Survival to discharge Survival to discharge –SR = 14 (50%) –CAVR = 19 (66%) CAVR CAVR –More late deaths - ?SR weeded out sick No significant difference in coags No significant difference in coags Gentilello, et al. Ann Surg, 1997.
