Hypoxic brain injury can be a devastating complication of anesthesia. Fortunately, it has become increasingly rare. Here we report a case of suspected intraoperative hypoxic brain injury treated with moderate hypothermia. Anesthesiologists should be aware of the option of using this therapy and how to employ it in the setting of suspected hypoxic brain injury.
