“The potential for the effective use of therapeutic hypothermia in acute central nervous system injury or stroke is exceedingly attractive because of its ability to inhibit post-traumatic or post-ischemic secondary injury by multiple mechanisms simultaneously. However, additional work is needed to accurately define its optimal application in different clinical situations and patient subgroups. Clearly, this journal is a much needed avenue for the publication of work in this important area that I have added to my regular journal reading list.”

"The role of therapeutic hypothermia in the management of some neurological diseases, such as neonatal hypoxic/ischemic encephalopathy and out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, is increasingly clear. But because other diseases associated with cerebral ischemia, such as traumatic brain injury, do not respond to this treatment, the mechanisms through which hypothermia positively effects the injured brain are not at all clear. Thus, there has been a surge in clinical and basic science hypothermia research and a journal that is focused on this treatment is therefore timely."

“Therapeutic hypothermia should be used for its beneficial effects; however, we still lack solid scientific evidence that could represent a breakthrough for its systematic and protocol-driven application. Therapeutic Hypothermia and Temperature Management provides us a unique forum to discuss issues of temperature monitoring and standardized cooling/rewarming approaches, combined treatment protocols, and clinical treatment strategies. This journal is pioneering the way from bench to bedside to facilitate better care for the brain injured worldwide.”
