Abstract

Targeted temperature management (TTM) (primarily therapeutic hypothermia (TH)) after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) has been considered effective, especially for adult-witnessed OHCA with a shockable initial rhythm, based on pathophysiology and on several clinical studies (especially two randomized controlled trials (RCTs) published in 2002). However, a recently published large RCT comparing TTM at 33 °C (TH) and TTM at 36 °C (normothermia) showed no advantage of 33 °C over 36 °C. Thus, this RCT has complicated the decision to perform TH after cardiac arrest. The results of this RCT are sometimes interpreted fever control alone is sufficient to improve outcomes after cardiac arrest because fever control was not strictly performed in the control groups of the previous two RCTs that showed an advantage for TH. Although this may be possible, another interpretation that the optimal target temperature for TH is much lower than 33 °C may be also possible. Additionally, there are many points other than target temperature that are unknown, such as the optimal timing to initiate TTM, the period between OHCA and initiating TTM, the period between OHCA and achieving the target temperature, the duration of maintaining the target temperature, the TTM technique, the rewarming method, and the management protocol after rewarming. RCTs are currently underway to shed light on several of these underexplored issues. In the present review, we examine how best to perform TTM after cardiac arrest based on the available evidence.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 7. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 16 September 2016.
All research outputs
#3,093,838
of 17,360,236 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Intensive Care
#136
of 417 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#57,737
of 269,796 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Intensive Care
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,360,236 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 81st percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 417 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 9.7. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 67% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 269,796 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 77% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
