OBJECTIVES Hypothermia of 32 degrees C-34 degrees C induced after resuscitation from cardiac arrest improves neurologic recovery, but the optimal depth of cooling is unknown. Using a rat model, the authors tested the hypothesis that cooling to 35 degrees C between hours 1 and 24 after resuscitation would improve neurologic outcome as much as cooling to 33 degrees C. METHODS Halothane-anesthetized rats (n = 38) underwent 8 minutes of asphyxial cardiac arrest and resuscitation. Cranial… CONTINUE READING
