Hipotermia terapéutica


THERAPEUTIC HYPOTHERMIA
Post-Resuscitation Care/Therapeutic Hypothermia
"These pages are intended for use by physicians, nurses and other health care professionals who are interested in the care of patients after they are resuscitated from cardiac arrest. While Advanced Cardiopulmonary Life Support (ACLS) guidelines provide consensus information on the recognition and treatment of cardiac arrest in the form of “links” in the “chain of survival”, the care of patients after resuscitation remains a “missing link”. It is hoped that these pages will contribute towards filling this void.
At the present time, the most important specific treatment for a patient surviving cardiac arrest may be the induction of therapeutic hypothermia. A number of animal and clinical studies have supported the use of this treatment, and international guidelines have been published regarding the use of this exciting new modality.
The majority of content on these resource pages focus on therapeutic hypothermia and practical issues of how hospitals can develop protocols for use".
