OBJECTIVE To determine whether higher levels of PaO2 are associated with in-hospital mortality and poor neurological status at hospital discharge in patients treated with mild therapeutic hypothermia after sudden cardiac arrest. DESIGN Retrospective analysis of a prospective cohort. PATIENTS A total of 170 consecutive patients treated with therapeutic hypothermia in the cardiovascular care unit of an academic tertiary care hospital. INTERVENTIONS None. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS Of… CONTINUE READING
