Purpose of reviewMany efforts have been made in the last decades to improve outcome in patients who are successfully resuscitated from sudden cardiac arrest. Despite some advances, postanoxic encephalopathy remains the most common cause of death among those patients and several investigations have focused on early neuroprotection in this setting. Recent findingsTherapeutic hypothermia is the only strategy able to provide effective neuroprotection in clinical practice. Experimental studies… Expand
Postcardiac arrest temperature management: infectious risks
TLDR
Therapeutic hypothermia following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest improves neurological recovery and more broadly, temperature management, as a risk for ICU infection is discussed. Expand
Therapeutic hypothermia promotes cerebral blood flow recovery and brain homeostasis after resuscitation from cardiac arrest in a rat model
TLDR
Early application of TH facilitates restoration of CBF back to baseline levels after CA, which in turn results in the restoration of brain electrical activity and improved neurological outcome. Expand
Greater temperature variability is not associated with a worse neurological outcome after cardiac arrest.
TLDR
Among comatose survivors treated with TTM after CA, 25% of patients had high TV; however, this was not associated with a worse neurologic outcome, and TV was not linked to a favourable neurological outcome. Expand
Mild hypothermia preserves cerebral cortex microcirculation after resuscitation in a rat model of cardiac arrest.
TLDR
Mild hypothermia improves the cerebral cortex microcirculatory blood supply/oxygen uptake mismatching after resuscitation and may provide an additional cerebral protection. Expand
Moving to human trials for argon neuroprotection in neurological injury: a narrative review.
TLDR
It is believed that the time has come to consider developing Phase II clinical trials to assess argon neuroprotection benefit in acute neurological injury, with improvements in neurocognitive, histological, and biomarker metrics, as well as improved survival. Expand
Is Glibenclamide the New Cool in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation?
TLDR
Since the Enlightenment, CPR has been mostly about the heart, not the brain, whereas arguably the brain is the organ most vulnerable to cardiac arrest, whereas recent decades have witnessed huge advances in cardiovascular pharmacotherapy that have evolved into the life-saving treatments the authors now take as routine.

The Molecular Mechanism and Neuroprotective Effect of Dihydrocapsaicin-Induced Mild Hypothermia After Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation in Rats.
To investigate the molecular mechanism of dihydrocapsaicin (DHC)-induced mild hypothermia in rats, and to compare its protective effect on the central nervous system with that of a conventionalExpand
Gynostemma pentaphyllum is neuroprotective in a rat model of cardiopulmonary resuscitation
TLDR
The results emphasize the importance of the early post-resuscitation phase for the neurological outcome after ACA/ Resuscitation, and demonstrated the power of GP substitution as neuroprotective intervention. Expand
Long-term depression in Purkinje neurons is persistently impaired following cardiac arrest and cardiopulmonary resuscitation in mice

  • 2017
TLDR
Sustained impairments in synaptic plasticity in Purkinje neurons that survive the initial injury and which likely contribute to motor coordination impairments observed after CA/CPR are demonstrated. Expand
α7 Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptor Mediates the Neuroprotection of Remote Ischemic Postconditioning in a Rat Model of Asphyxial Cardiac Arrest.
TLDR
Neuroprotection of RIPost was related with the activation of α7nAChR, which could suppress nuclear factor-κB and activate signal transducer and activator of transcription-3 in a rat asphyxial CA model. Expand

Treatment of comatose survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest with induced hypothermia.
TLDR
Treatment with moderate hypothermia appears to improve outcomes in patients with coma after resuscitation from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, according to preliminary observations. Expand
Early- versus late-initiation of therapeutic hypothermia after cardiac arrest: preliminary observations from the experience of 17 Italian intensive care units.
  • Medicine
  • Resuscitation
  • 2012
TLDR
Mortality was significantly higher when therapeutic hypothermia was started within 2h of cardiac arrest than when it was started later, and the lack of possibility to control several putative confounding factors should be considered as preliminary observations warranting further research. Expand
Treatment of Comatose Survivors of Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest with Induced Hypothermia
TLDR
This randomized, controlled trial compared the effects of moderate hypothermia and normothermia in patients who remained unconscious after resuscitation from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest to survive to hospital discharge and be discharged to home or to a rehabilitation facility. Expand
Mild hypothermia during advanced life support: a preliminary study in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest
TLDR
Prehospital induction of therapeutic hypothermia using infusion of 2 l of 4°C normal saline during advanced life support was feasible, effective and safe and Larger studies are required to assess the impact that this early cooling has on neurological outcomes after cardiac arrest. Expand
Design of the PRINCESS trial: pre-hospital resuscitation intra-nasal cooling effectiveness survival study (PRINCESS)
TLDR
This ongoing trial will assess the impact of IATH with TNEC, which may be able to rapidly induce brain cooling and have fewer side effects than other methods, such as cold fluid infusion, if this intervention is found to improve neurological outcome. Expand
Mild therapeutic hypothermia to improve the neurologic outcome after cardiac arrest.
TLDR
In patients who have been successfully resuscitated after cardiac arrest due to ventricular fibrillation, therapeutic mild hypothermia increased the rate of a favorable neurologic outcome and reduced mortality. Expand
Early goal-directed hemodynamic optimization combined with therapeutic hypothermia in comatose survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
TLDR
The feasibility of establishing an integrated post-cardiac arrest resuscitation (PCAR) algorithm combining TH and EGDHO within 6h of emergency department (ED) presentation was examined and found that in patients with ROSC after OHCA, EGD HO and TH can be implemented simultaneously. Expand
Early achievement of mild therapeutic hypothermia and the neurologic outcome after cardiac arrest.
TLDR
Early achievement of MTH by endovascular cooling appears to reduce hypoxic brain injury and to favour a good neurologic outcome after CA. Expand
Immediate prehospital hypothermia protocol in comatose survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
TLDR
Preliminary observation suggests that in comatose survivors of CA, prehospital TH with infusion of large-volume, ice-cold intravenous saline is feasible and can be used safely by mobile emergency and intensive care units. Expand
Intra-Arrest Cooling Improves Outcomes in a Murine Cardiac Arrest Model
TLDR
Timing of hypothermia is a crucial determinant of survival in the murine arrest model, and early intra-arrest cooling appears to be significantly better than delayed post-ROSC cooling or normothermic resuscitation. Expand
