SCCM Pod-212 CCM: Therapeutic Hypothermia Following Sudden Cardiac Arrest
Jeffrey Guy, MD, MSc, MMHC, speaks with David R. Janz, MD, lead author on an article published in the December issue of Critical Care Medicine, “Hyperoxia is Associated with Increased Mortality in Patients Treated with Mild Therapeutic Hypothermia after Sudden Cardiac Arrest.” Investigators found that sudden cardiac arrest is associated with high hospital mortality and poor neurologic outcomes. Janz is a clinical fellow at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee.
