Show Notes

Current guidelines for post-cardiac arrest management recommend TTM (32C to 36C) for all patients with coma after resuscitation from cardiac arrest. The benefit of TTM is primarily seen in patients who present with a shockable rhythm.  However, nonshockable rhythms are now the most common presenting rhythm in patients with cardiac arrest. The use of TTM in patients with nonshockable rhythms remains controversial. In this podcast, we discuss the latest randomized article on the use of TTM in patients with cardiac arrest with a nonshockable rhythm. Should these results change YOUR practice?
