Abstract

Any discussion of the role of therapeutic hypothermia in medical practice must distinguish among three historical epochs: the initial historical period; the subsequent application of profound degrees of hypothermia for medical and surgical procedures; and the “modern” period of therapeutic hypothermia, which was ushered in by observations that mild-to-moderate temperature decreases were also therapeutic.
