Impact of Fever Prevention in Brain Injured Patients (INTREPID)

This study is being conducted to determine if fever prevention, using the Arctic Sun Temperature Management System, improves outcomes in brain injured patients who have suffered from a stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage or subarachnoid hemorrhage. There will be two groups in this study. The fever prevention group (treatment group) will use the Arctic Sun® Temperature Management System to monitor and control body temperature. The standard care group (control group) will be treated according to standard medical practice such as medication and/or cooling blankets.
