Finite Element Modelling of heat exchange in the stroke-affected brain during therapeutic hypothermia
Hypothermia is a promising neuroprotectant for the treatment of ischaemic stroke. Current trials of hypothermia rely on cooled blood to reduce the temperature of ischaemic brain tissue. However, since blood flow to the ischaemic brain tissue is compromised, there is likely to be spatial variation in the rate and level of cooling accomplished by cooled blood in this tissue. Finite Element Modelling was used to investigate variation the effectiveness of tissue cooling as a result of spatial...[Show more]
