treatment in adult patients with severe traumatic brain injury: A metaanalysis.
Mild and moderate hypothermia
were found to be associated with higher mortality rate.
Protection in animal models of brain and spinal cord injury with mild to moderate hypothermia
Clinically, moderate hypothermia
, in which the patient's core temperature is reduced 3-5[degrees]C, has been used to preserve neuronal function and improve patient outcome in spinal trauma, neurosurgery, and cardiovascular surgery (Dietrich et al.
Standardized surgical and CPB technique was used with cooling to mild to moderate hypothermia
Under a moderate hypothermia
of 28[degrees]C, cardiac arrest was obtained with antegrade isothermic potassium blood cardioplegia.
consensus seems to be that with moderate hypothermia
(down to 30[degrees]C -32[degrees]C) the alpha-stat method is preferred while with deep hypothermia (below 30[degrees]C) the pH-stat method may be preferred to better maintain cerebral oxygenation.

(Hobbs and Oorschot, 2008; Oorschot et al.
Effect of moderate hypothermia
on gene expression by THP-1 cells: a DNA microarray study.
The severity of the condition is ranked in three categories: Mild hypothermia is a temperature between 90[degrees]F and 99[degrees]F; moderate hypothermia
is a temperature between 82[degrees]F and 90[degrees]F; and severe hypothermia is a temperature lower than 82[degrees]F.
TREATMENT: In addition to administering standard treatments including surgery, the Bills' team doctor, Andrew Cappuccino, tried an experimental therapy on Everett: He put Everett into a state of moderate hypothermia
, a condition in which a person's body temperature drops from 37[degrees]C to 35[degrees]C (98.
If exposure to cold continues and shivering stops, moderate hypothermia
is beginning and poses the risk of serious consequences.
is diagnosed when the core body temperature is 82[degrees]F-90[degrees]F (28[degrees]C-32[degrees]C).

Mild hypothermia is signified by bouts of shivering, grogginess and muddled thinking, while symptoms of moderate hypothermia
include violent shivering, an inability to think or concentrate, slow breathing and a slow, weak pulse.
