‘Cooling’ effect on brain injury victims being studied in Illinois
Doctors and researchers are conducting a study in Illinois in order to see if a cooling effect can help people who have suffered from brain injuries.
The 12-month study is being done by researchers at the University of Illinois College of Medicine and is taking place in Urbana. An issue that arises when cooling the brain is how to not also cool the body’s temperature.
A doctor then team up with a NASA scientist in order to create a cooling helmet that could cool just the brain. Because people do better in cooler temperatures then when temperatures rise, doctors are hoping that this study will help to treat those who have suffered from TBIs.
