Mild therapeutic hypothermia in the temperature range of 32º - 34ºC. improves survival in patients recovered from a ventricular fibrillation cardiac arrest. The same therapy is suggested...
Cardiac arrest is a sudden, unexpected loss of heart function. Therapeutic hypothermia, in which the body's temperature is lowered and maintained several degrees below normal for a period ...
ILCOR Recommendations "On the basis of the published evidence to date, the Advanced Life Support (ALS) Task Force of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) made the f...
Recently, early defibrillation and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for sudden onset of cardiac arrest are advancing, however, survival rate is still very low in the world. Furthermore,...
The overall goal of this study is to determine whether initiating hypothermia in cardiac arrest patients as soon as possible in the field results in a greater proportion of patients who su...
Recent studies suggest that a 48-hour therapeutic hypothermia protocol does not improve outcomes in paediatric out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survivors. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effec...
Separate trials to evaluate therapeutic hypothermia after paediatric cardiac arrest for out-of-hospital and in-hospital settings reported no statistically significant differences in survival with favo...
Bradycardia during therapeutic hypothermia has been reported to be a predictor of favorable neurologic outcomes in out-of-hospital cardiac arrests. However, bradycardia occurrence rate may be influenc...
To investigate whether the relationship between heart rate and neurological outcome is independent of therapeutic hypothermia (TH) and whether heart rate is related to hemodynamic instability post-car...
This study assessed the ability of the Acute Physiologic and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE) II score, Simplified Acute Physiology Score (SAPS) II, Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) score,...
Abnormally low BODY TEMPERATURE that is intentionally induced in warm-blooded animals by artificial means. In humans, mild or moderate hypothermia has been used to reduce tissue damages, particularly after cardiac or spinal cord injuries and during subsequent surgeries.
A technique to arrest the flow of blood by lowering BODY TEMPERATURE to about 20 degrees Centigrade, usually achieved by infusing chilled perfusate. The technique provides a bloodless surgical field for complex surgeries.
Occurrence of heart arrest in an individual when there is no immediate access to medical personnel or equipment.
Application of heat to correct hypothermia, accidental or induced.
Lower than normal body temperature, especially in warm-blooded animals; in man usually accidental or unintentional.
