Hypothermia during brain ischemia can improve neurological outcome. This study tested whether local cranial cooling during the low-flow state of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) could produce clinically significant cerebral cooling. Ice was applied to the heads and necks of subjects (hypothermia group) with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OOHCA) during CPR. Nasopharyngeal and tympanic temperatures were measured as surrogates for cerebral temperature. The rate of cranial cooling in the… CONTINUE READING
