CARDIAC

TARGETED TEMPERATURE MANAGEMENT
FOR CARDIAC PATIENTS

Targeted temperature management (TTM) refers to strict temperature control following Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Historically referred to as “therapeutic hypothermia” or maintaining normothermia, prior evidence suggested targeted temperature management following sudden cardiac arrest may improve neurologically intact survival with a number of proposed mechanisms.

Professional guidelines from the AHA and ERC continue to recommend therapeutic hypothermia of between 33-36 degrees C for 24 hours, and normothermia for at least 72 hours after ROSC with In-Hospital Cardiac Arrests (IHCA) and Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrests (OHCA).
