Therapeutic Hypothermia to the Rescue!

Therapeutic Hypothermia to the Rescue!

This article discusses therapeutic hypothermia in the treatment of cardiac arrest patients.  Ever since I first heard about the technique, I’ve found this treatment to be fascinating. As stated in the article, “…the most celebrated aspect of PAC [post-arrest care] has been therapeutic hypothermia (TH).”  The efficacy of this treatment seems undeniable and it will be fascinating to see how cardiac care evolves over the next decade and beyond.

Therapeutic hypothermia is also well discussed in the book Cheating Death by Sanjay Gupta, a book I highly recommend to anyone interested in medicine.
