I’ve often wondered if the devastating outcomes observed in patients presenting in status epilepticus (SE), are far more influenced by the underlying etiology inciting this seizure activity than the time it takes us to control this neurological outburst. And while the HYBERNATUS study does not directly address this question, it does allow for some interesting […]
At this stage of the game, if your hospital is not offering hypothermia to out-of-hospital cardiac arrests, you are probably lagging behind optimal care. For shockable rhythms, you essentially double your patient’s chances of leaving the hospital with good neurological outcome. However hypothermia can be tough, unless you have done a bunch.
