Shock Trauma to Study Body Cooling for Patients in Cardiac Arrest from Massive Bleeding

Shock Trauma to Study Body Cooling for Patients in Cardiac Arrest from Massive Bleeding

The R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center at the University of Maryland has opened a clinical trial to study whether rapidly cooling the body temperature of patients whose hearts stop due to massive blood loss will give surgeons extra time to find and repair injuries, and in turn, help save their lives. The trial, funded by the U.S. Department of Defense, builds on previous findings that therapeutic hypothermia improves survival in non-trauma cardiac arrest patients.
