5. No benefit in therapeutic hypothermia for in-hospital cardiac arrest
from By Lynn Hetzler
From Nov. 2:
Healthcare professionals often administer therapeutic hypothermia to optimize survival of cardiac arrest. While there are several studies that support therapeutic hypothermia after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, there had been no studies investigating its use for in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) — until now. A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association aimed to evaluate the association between therapeutic hypothermia and survival after IHCA.
