Hypothermia and circulatory arrest are clinically acceptable procedures for the correction of congenital heart lesions. The disadvantages of current methods are that non invasive techniques are slow and difficult to control, while those which are fast and controllable are invasive and carry increased risk of complications. This study evaluated the efficiency of the respiratory tract as a heat exchanger for the production of hypothermia in rabbits.
