Therapeutic hypothermia and systematic post cardiac arrest care has demonstrated improved outcomes among out of hospital cardiac arrest patients. The transport team served as a referral facility for hypothermia and post cardiac arrest care. We have also provided inter-facility transportation for cooling patients. Active cooling during transportation is not our routine. With varied in mode and time of transportation and several limitations our present study aims to report the results of active cooling management of these patient with targeted temperature machine (TTM). In 2013, we have seven post cardiac arrest patients treated with therapeutic hypothermia, 3 of 7 cases survived with cerebral performance category (CPC) 1; defined as CPC 1 (good cerebral performance normal life).
