BACKGROUND The benefit of therapeutic hypothermia (TH) for comatose adult patients with return of spontaneous circulation after cardiac arrest (CA) with non-shockable initial rhythms is uncertain. We evaluated whether TH reduces mortality and improves neurological outcome in comatose adults resuscitated from non-shockable CA. METHODS We searched PubMed, EMBASE, CENTRAL, and BIOSIS through March 2010, to identify studies using TH after non-shockable CA. Randomized and non-randomized studies… CONTINUE READING
