The paper
HACA-IHCA: Wolfrum S, Roedl K, Hanebutte A, Pfeifer R, Kurowski V, Riessen R, Daubmann A, Braune S, Söffker G, Bibiza-Freiwald E, Wegscheider K, Schunkert H, Thiele H, Kluge S. Temperature Control After In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest: A Randomized Clinical Trial. Circulation. 2022 Sep 28:101161CIRCULATIONAHA122060106. doi: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.122.060106.

Bottom line
HACA-IHCA is too small and too flawed to add much to the overall debate, but it is another small piece of data that suggests hypothermia is not needed after cardiac arrest.
