Stable body temperature is required for the success of brain hypothermia treatment. As part of brain hypothermia treatment, cooling methods have been discussed previously. However, there are many factors that can affect attempts to stabilize brain tissue hypothermia. Bed configuration is also an important consideration for the success of stable hypothermia management.
