Abstract

After cardiopulmonary resuscitation, about one tenth to a third of successfully resuscitated patients leave hospital to live an independent life again. This review shows that therapeutic hypothermia with conventional cooling methods improves neurologic outcome and survival of patients successfully resuscitated after in-hospital and out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
