Therapeutic Hypothermia Annmarie Keck RN, CEN, EMT-B Clinical Outreach Educator



History of Hypothermia Baron Dominique Jean Larrey, a surgeon in the Napoleonic army who invented the "flying ambulance" to rapidly rescue wounded soldiers from the field, described that during the Napoleonic wars wounded soldiers who were put close to a campfire died earlier than those who were not re-warmed.


Dog Studies-Safar Center Dr Peter Safar editorial 2002 Safar Center for Resuscitation Research University of Pittsburg PA - 1994 5 outcome studies in dogs that documented for the first time after normothermic cardiac arrest, the ability of mild hypothermia to reduce brain damage. "It was the dog outcome data that led to the positive randomized clinical outcome studies in Europe and Australia published in NEJM Feb. 2002." Annals Emergency Medicine Vol 41:6 p 887 – 888 June 2003

Bernard SA, Gray TW Treatment of comatose survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest with induced hypothermia NEJM 2002;346:557-563, Australia Results: 49% vs 26%, hypo vs normo, had a "good outcome" - as defined by discharge to home or rehab 2. Hypothermia After Cardiac Arrest Study Group. Mild therapeutic hypothermia to improve the neurologic outcome after cardiac arrest NEJM 2002;346:549-556 Results: 55% vs 39%, hypo vs normo, had a CPC-cerebral performance category score of "good recovery" or "moderate disability"


ILCOR Advisory Statement-Oct ‘02 "Unconscious adult patients with spontaneous circulation after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest should be cooled to 32C to 34C for 12-24 hrs when the initial rhythm was ventricular fibrillation." Nolan, et al., Circulation July 8th 2003 p 118 – 121 • Apotosis vs Necrosis • Reperfusion injury • Inflammatory response • Free radicals "Cool Under Pressure" The Spokesman Review Friday Jan 23rd 2004 A 44 y/o fm comatose after apparent MI on January 12th associated with cardiac arrest, and resultant coma.

Dr. James Nania, Dr. Pierre Leimgruber and Dr. Dan Coulston and the fine nursing staff of the Deaconess ED and CICU The patient awoke after nearly 48 hours • Without measurable neurological deficits • no memory for the day of the heart attack.
It took 7 defibrillations – some with an AED, and some in the ambulance en route to Deaconess.
DMC's Manual protocol External cooling will be initiated in ED by RN to include: Initiation with ice packs on patient's axilla and groin until cooling blankets started.
Lay single layer sheet on top of each cooling blanket.
Wrap patient in 2 cooling blankets/ sheets (sheet side to patient) by "log rolling" patient—one blanket wrapped around torso and the other around the pelvis and legs.
he "MANUAL" mode on cooling machine and set the
set point temperature on the cooling unit to 5 degrees C.
Once patient temperature of 33 degrees C is achieved, select the "AUTO" mode on the cooling machine

• If patient meets other criteria for induced hypothermia and is not intubated, then intubate according to protocol before induced cooling. • If unable to intubate DO NOT initiate induced hypothermia.

initiated, discontinue cooling and initiate appropriate protocol.
