Therapeutic hypothermia-induced electrocardiographic changes and relations to in-hospital mortality.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Therapeutic hypothermia improves survival for selected patients who remain comatose after cardiac arrest. Hypothermia triggers changes in electrocardiographic (ECG) parameters; however, the association of these changes to in-hospital mortality remains unclear. HYPOTHESIS QT interval changes induced by therapeutic hypothermia are not associated… (More)
