Accidental Hypothermia

R.E.B.E.L.EM - October 08, 2018 - By Johnson L
"Take Home Points:
  • Hypothermia is neuroprotective and patients can survive prolonged periods of cardiac arrest. Termination of resuscitative efforts in cardiac arrest should not considered until the patient is >32°C or has a K > 12 mEq/L
  • Active internal rewarming is the keystone of treatment for unstable hypothermic patients. Utilize available resources including ECMO to effectively warm your patient
  • Consider alternate causes for hypothermia, especially in patients who fail to respond to warming"
