Objective: Determine the effect of craniocerebral hypothermia and nasopharyngeal cooling on cerebral blood flow, intracranial pressure, and cerebral perfusion pressure. Material and methods: We examined 41 patients with craniocerebral trauma treated in surgical intensive care units No. 1, No. 2 of the second clinic of TMA for the period from September 2015 to December 2017. Results: In the first group there was a decrease in ICP by 27.5% to the third day of therapy, an increase in cerebral blood flow and CPP by 11.5%, in contrast to the baseline values. In the second group there was a reduction in ICP by 29.8% to the third day of therapy, an increase in cerebral blood flow and CPP by 11.4%, in contrast to the baseline values. Conclusions: Early application of craniocerebral hypothermia and nasopharyngeal cooling contributes to a decrease in the level of maximum rise in ICP; the speedy normalization of ICP.
