Hypothermia has been linked to beneficial neurologic outcomes in different clinical situations and its therapeutic value is considered important. For example, in asphyctic neonates and in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (with ventricular fibrillation as the initial cardiac rhythm), rapid installation of hypothermia has been reported to add substantial therapeutic benefits over nonthermal standard treatments. Yet, in other groups of patients in which the application of therapeutic… CONTINUE READING
