Ice Ice Baby

I came across this photo late yesterday afternoon, in the unprocessed remains of the large image donation we received from OHSU News & Publications in January. There is a caption on the back: "11/87. A 3-month-old infant undergoing surface cooling prior to repair of a complex congenital heart defect." Induced hypothermia is a common technique for cardiac surgical procedures.
