Lowering body temperature may help cardiac arrest patients
from HealthDay News
Lowering the body temperature after someone's heart has stopped beating may improve the odds of surviving with good brain function, a new study suggests. In fact, patients whose body temperatures were lowered (therapeutic hypothermia) were nearly three times more likely to survive cardiac arrest, the study found. Those treated with the cold therapy were also 3.5 times more likely to have better mental function than those who didn't receive the therapy, the researchers said.
