OBJECTIVES Mild therapeutic hypothermia (TH) has been shown to improve neurologic outcome in patients experiencing cardiac arrest after return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). The best timing to initiate TH is currently not known. The aim of this study by the ICE (Italian Cooling Experience) group was to investigate the relationship between the timing of initiation of therapeutic hypothermia (TH) and both patient survival and neurologic outcome.
