CLINICAL BENEFITS OF THERAPEUTIC HYPOTHERMIA AFTER IN-HOSPITAL CARDIAC ARREST WITH SURFACE COOLING METHOD IN PHYATHAI 2 HOSPITAL: TWO CASES REPORT

SEPTEMBER 2012 - VOL.4 | CASE REPORT

Therapeutic hypothermia is a standard recommended treatment for patients after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. However, clinical benefits of therapeutic hypothermia for patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest have not yet been approved. The present report aims to demonstrate clinical benefit of therapeutic hypothermia in patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest at the Phyathai 2 Hospital.

We reported two cases of patients who were treated with therapeutic hypothermia after in-hospital cardiac arrest. Surface cooling method with Arctic Sun® system was applied in both cases. Core temperature curve and serial laboratory parameters are reported.
