Description

This unique scientific event will be of great significance for basic and clinical scientists from all around the world, interested in the expanding field of therapeutic hypothermia. The venue of the International Hypothermia Symposium rotates among the continents, and has so far been located in Tokyo and Miami, both hosting groundbreaking and highly successful meetings.

As we now bring the Hypothermia Symposium to Europe and Sweden, the land of ice and honey, the theme will be "Brain and Heart", and include cardiology and myocardial protection in addition to brain protection and neurointensive care.

The focus areas include translational and basic research and clinical trials with the following topics:
Therapeutic hypothermia in
Cardiac arrest and neonatal encephalopathy
Stroke
Traumatic brain injury
Myocardial infarction
Mechanisms of tissue protection by hypothermia
Prognostication
Emerging tissue cooling technologies

We believe that clinicians and basic scientists in the fields of neurology, neurosurgery, neurointensive care, paediatrics, neurobiology, experimental medicine, and cardiology will appreciate the outstanding and important science presented at the symposium.
