In recent years, mild or moderate hypothermia during which brain temperature is reduced to 30–35°C has been proposed for clinical use as an adjunct for achieving protection from cerebral ischemia and traumatic brain injury [Busto et al., 1987; Dietrich 1992; Gal et al., 2002; Jiang et al., 2000; Stone et al., 1995]. Clinical data have suggested a 1–2 hour treatment window within which post-ischemic hypothermia must be instituted to confer any significant neuro-protection [Maier et al., 1997; Markgraf et al., 2001]. Based on the clinical and animal studies, it would be ideal to initiate hypothermia treatment in the pre-hospital settings.
