Aims & Scope


Therapeutic Hypothermia and Temperature Management is the first and only journal to cover all aspects of hypothermia and temperature considerations relevant to this exciting field, including its application in cardiac arrest, spinal cord and traumatic brain injury, stroke, burns, and much more. The Journal provides a strong multidisciplinary forum to ensure that research advances are well disseminated, and that therapeutic hypothermia is well understood and used effectively to enhance patient outcomes. Novel findings from translational preclinical investigations as well as clinical studies and trials are featured in original articles, state-of-the-art review articles, protocols and best practices.

Therapeutic Hypothermia and Temperature Management coverage includes:

  • Temperature mechanisms and cooling strategies
  • Protocols, risk factors, and drug interventions
  • Intraoperative considerations
  • Post-resuscitation cooling
  • ICU management

Therapeutic Hypothermia and Temperature Management is under the editorial leadership of Editor-in-Chief W. Dalton Dietrich, III, PhD, The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, University of Miami; European Editor Hans Friberg, MD, PhD, Lund University; Australasian Editor, Stephen Bernard, MD, The Alfred Hospital; and other leading investigators.
