From: Mild hypothermia during advanced life support: a preliminary study in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest

Figure 1

Study design and protocol. 1Induction: hypothermia was induced by infusion via peripheral intravenous line of 2000 ml of NaCl 0.9% at 4°C. 2Maintenance hypothermia was achieved by endovascular cooling using Coolgard 3000™, with a target core temperature of 33°C over 24 hours. 3Rewarming was by endovascular warming by Coolgard 3000™ from 33°C to 37°C over 24 hours. ALS, advanced life support; EMS, Emergency Medical Services; ICU, intensive care unit; ILCOR, International Liaison Committee On Resuscitation; OHCA, out of hospital cardiac arrest; ROSC, return of spontaneous circulation. CPC M6: Neurological status was evaluated at 6 months using the Pittsburgh Cerebral Performance Category (CPC)
