IN cardiac arrest, ventricular fibrillation The Use of
hypothermia, mild, immediatly after resuscitation
As Treatment, Acute
Is better Than
standard treatment with normothermia
To reduce mortality at 6 months (41% with hypothermia VS 55% if not)
N Engl J Med. 2008 Jan 3;358(1):9-17 Cohorts
IN cardiac arrest, ventricular fibrillation, in hospital The Use of
rapid defibrillation in less than 2 minutes
As Treatment, Acute
Is better Than
delayed defibrillation in more than 2 minutes
To increase survival to hospital discharge: 39% if in < 2 min VS 22% if not)
