Abstract

The study was conducted to treat children with severe viral encephalitis by using sub-hypothermia combined
with micropump infusion of midazolam for adjuvant treatment. The group was treated with conventional
methods such as maintaining water and electrolyte balance, glucocorticoids, nutritional respiratory support,
dehydration and intracranial pressure, and antiviral therapy. The observation group was treated with head
hypothermia combined with micropump infusion of midazolam. The adjuvant treatment was performed, and the
treatment efficiency, the improvement time of clinical symptoms and signs, the EEG after two weeks of
treatment, the laboratory indexes after 3 days of treatment, and the GCS score were compared. The treatment
efficiency of the observation group was significantly higher than that of the control group (P<0.05). The
improvement time of clinical symptoms and signs in the observation group was significantly lower than that of
the control group (P<0.05). The EEG of the observation group was excellent after two weeks of treatment. In
the control group (P<0.05); the laboratory parameters and GCS scores of the observation group were
significantly better than those of the control group after 3 days of treatment (P<0.05), and the differences were
statistically significant. In the treatment of children with severe viral encephalitis, the application of head
hypothermia combined with micropump infusion of midazolam has a significant effect, and can improve the
clinical symptoms and signs, EEG, laboratory indicators and GCS scores. It is worth promoting.
