PURPOSE Although animal studies document conflicting data on the influence of hypothermia on cytokine release in various settings, no data exist if hypothermia affects the inflammatory response after successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Arrest- and treatment-related variables of 71 patients were documented, and serum samples(More)
INTRODUCTION Knowledge about the influence of current neuroprotective interventions on prognostic markers after survival from cardiac arrest is lacking. This study aimed to investigate the effects of mild therapeutic hypothermia on the release of the astroglial protein S-100 after cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac(More)
INTRODUCTION Ischemia-reperfusion injury following cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is associated with a systemic inflammatory response, resulting in post-resuscitation disease. In the present study we investigated the response of the pleiotropic inflammatory cytokine macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) to CPR in patients admitted to the(More)
