Target Temperature Management After Cardiac Arrest

2010-07-15 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Experimental studies and previous clinical trials suggest an improvement in mortality and neurological function with hypothermia after cardiac arrest. However, the accrued evidence is inconclusive and associated with risks of systematic error, design error and random error. Elevated body temperature after cardiac arrest is associated with a worse outcome. Previous trials did not treat elevated body temperature in the control groups. The optimal target temperature for post-resuscitation care is not known. The primary purpose with the TTM-trial is to evaluate if there are differences in all-cause mortality, neurological function and adverse events between a target temperature management at 33°C and 36°C for 24 hours following return of spontaneous circulation after cardiac arrest.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Occurrence of heart arrest in an individual when there is no immediate access to medical personnel or equipment.

Measurement of the temperature of a material, or of the body or an organ by various temperature sensing devices which measure changes in properties of the material that vary with temperature, such as ELASTICITY; MAGNETIC FIELDS; or LUMINESCENCE.

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.
