    Targeted Temperature management in TBI
    Dr Swapnil Pawar

In this episode, we discuss the role of therapeutic hypothermia and targeted temperature management in severe TBI. We dive deeper into the available literature on this topic and share our recommendations on this controversy.

The key controversies on this topic include –

.    1. Selective Brain Cooling versus Whole Body Cooling

2. Target Temperature

3. Duration of Temperature Management

Our recommendation –

Targeted Temperature Monitoring for severe Traumatic Brain Injury remains the mainstay treatment and avoiding hyperthermia in the acute phase seems more rational than inducing hypothermia.

Hypothermia has proven harmful in most randomized controlled trials conducted so far and should be avoided for patients with TBI.
