Abstract

Cerebrovascular diseases have a heavy burden on society and the family. At present, in the treatment of cerebrovascular diseases, the recognized effective treatment method is a thrombolytic therapy after cerebral infarction, but limited to the time window problem, many patients cannot benefit. Other treatments for cerebrovascular disease are still in the exploration stage. The study found that medical gas and hypothermia have brain protection effects. Further research found that when the two are used in combination, the therapeutic effect has a superimposed effect. This article reviews the current research progress of hypothermia therapy combined with medical gas therapy for cerebrovascular disease.
