Outreach and the evolution of critical care.


mia is being implemented. The survey did not assess methods of monitoring hypothermia. In view of the potential to induce inaccuracies, continuous core temperature monitoring via either a pulmonary artery catheter (if already in situ) or at one of the other sites (bladder, oesophagus, nasopharynx or rectum) is an integral part of therapeutic hypothermia after cardiac arrest [4]. The failure to assess the methods of temperature monitoring issue is not a criticism of this survey, but I feel this should be incorporated into future studies or surveys on therapeutic hypothermia post-cardiac arrest.
