Brain injury after resuscitation is associated with high morbidity and mortality in children. Therapeutic hypothermia has theoretical benefits on brain preservation. It has been shown to be effective in improving neurological outcomes after adult ventricular arrhythmia-induced cardiac arrest and neonatal asphyxia. However, there have only been a few reports about therapeutic hypothermia after pediatric resuscitation. We conducted this retrospective cohort study in a tertiary pediatric intensive… CONTINUE READING
