Targeted Temperature Management in Subarachnoid Haemorrhage


Keller, E (2016). Targeted Temperature Management in Subarachnoid Haemorrhage. In: 5th International Targeted Temperature Management Teaching Course, Barcelona, Castelldefels, Barcelona, 3 November 2016 - 4 November 2016, 6-7.

Abstract

- Animal studies have improved the understanding of SAH pathophysiology
- Intravascular catheters are associated with increased risk of thrombosis
- Larger retrospective case series show that TTM is a last resort treatment of intracranial hypertension and vasospasm
- Findings in a recent prospective pilot study showed that TTM treatment can be beneficial in high-grade SAH patients
- A prospective randomized study in high-grade patients with prophylactic TTM is needed and should include a few centres with a very strictly controlled treatment protocol
