Targeted Temperature Management at 33°C versus 36°C after Cardiac Arrest
Hypothermia is recommended for unconscious survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest to preserve heart and neurologic function. This study randomized 950 pts to determine whether 33º C or 36º C is the most appropriate target temperature. Mortality was similar (50% vs 48%) and outcomes at 180 days for mortality and poor neurologic function were also similar (54% vs 52%).
