Therapeutic cooling effectively targets site of
"We thought that the core of the brain would be warmer than the outer portions," he says. "This is usually how body temperature works." Dr. Wu explains that the observed effect could be due to cooled blood. The center of the brain receives the cooled blood first, before reaching peripheral parts of the brain, and may get colder for this reason. "Almost every patient showed this pattern," he says, "so the effect is real."
The study represents a critical proof of concept showing that the therapy is reaching the site most likely to be injured.标签：
