A Randomized Trial Comparing 2 Methods for Rapid Induction of Cooling in Stroke Patients, Cold Infusions vs. EMCOOLS Brain.Pad (iCOOL 3) "iCOOL 3"


Phase 2 Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

Mild hypothermia improves outcome in patients with global cerebral ischemia after cardiac arrest. Hypothermia seems promising also in other acute hypoxic-ischemic or in brain swelling associated cerebrovascular disease. The narrow-time-frame is a major issue ("time is brain"). To provide immediate cooling without delay, easy to use, mobile and effective methods are needed. Cold infusions (4 °C) are an accepted...
