Abstract

Clinical question In unconscious patients of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, does targeted temperature management to 36°C (96.8°F) improve outcomes compared to the standard target of 32°C-34°C (89.6°F-93.2°F)? Article chosen Nielson N, Wetterslev J, Cronberg T, et al. Targeted temperature management at 33°C versus 36°C after cardiac arrest. N Engl J Med 2013;369:2197-2206.

OBJECTIVE:

To determine which temperature, 33°C (91.4°F) or 36°C (96.8°F), is associated with lower mortality and better neurologic function after cardiac arrest.

KEYWORDS:
