Therapeutic Hypothermia (IMAGE) Biophysical Society Caption This drawing depicts surfactant (orange and yellow), which is a molecular layer at the interface of air and liquid in the lung that is essential for breathing. New research shows that temperatures used during therapeutic hypothermia improve surfactant's activities. Credit Image courtesy of Chiara Autilio and created by Alejandro Alonso.
