Abstract

Background: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of temperature on oxidative stress in brain stem tissue induced by hemorrhagic shock. We researched the hemorrhagic oxidative stress at various core temperatures using reduced glutathione (GSH) levels and thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances (TBARS) as markers of lipid peroxidation in brain stem homogenate.
