Dear Editor, We have developed a prognosis scoring system (the post-Cardiac Arrest Syndrome for Therapeutic hypother-mia (CAST) score) for predicting the neurologic prognosis in patients with post-cardiac arrest syndrome (PCAS) before the initiation of therapeutic hypothermia (TH). It may be useful for deciding whether TH should be initiated or not and for(More)
right ventricular function in severe acute respiratory distress syndrome" (vol. 21, pp. 197). We could indeed appreciate, as Professor J.L.

METHODS A multi-center, retrospective, observational study was performed. Data of a total of 151 consecutive adults who underwent(More)
