Controlled therapeutic hypothermia is a method of preserving neurological function post-resuscitation.It has been associated with improved functional recovery and reduced histological deficits in animal models of cardiac arrest.
Three randomized clinical studies have been reported showing improved neurological outcome and reduced mortality in post-resuscitation patients treated with hypothermia compared to controls. Of the various methods of inducing hypothermia, internal cooling using an endovascular catheter and external cooling using gel pads with a water based circulating system have shown the most promise. There have not been any studies looking at outcomes between the two methods of cooling.
