Targeted Temperature Management After Cardiac Arrest

  • Cindy H. Hsu
  • Hasan B. Alam


Cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the United States and globally. Despite recent advancements in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, the survival rate of cardiac arrest remains low. Targeted temperature management (TTM), or therapeutic hypothermia, has been shown to improve the survival and functional outcome of comatose cardiac arrest survivors. This chapter will focus on the pathophysiology and practical considerations of TTM after adult non-traumatic cardiac arrest. The indications, implementation, and side effects of TTM are discussed here to assist readers in its application during post-arrest management.
