AIM OF THE STUDY We investigated implementation and efficacy of mild therapeutic hypothermia in the treatment of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest due to ventricular fibrillation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two periods were compared, an historical one (36 patients) between 2000 and 2002 where therapeutic hypothermia was never used, and a recent period (32 patients) between 2003 and 2005 where therapeutic hypothermia (32-34 degrees C) was implemented prospectively in our unit. Cooling was obtained by… CONTINUE READING
