Course Details

Overview

According to the American Heart Association, nearly 383,000 out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrests occur each year. Neurologic injury is the most common cause of death after these events. The goal of therapeutic hypothermia (TH) is to improve survival and neurologic function. This course provides nurses with information on how they can best care for patients receiving therapeutic hypothermia. Recent recommendations by the AHA and the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation recommend inducing mild hypothermia. Studies indicate that the sooner this treatment starts, the greater the benefit.

Key Learning Outcomes

  1. Describe therapeutic hypothermia.
  2. Compare cooling methods for TH.
  3. Discuss clinical management of patients receiving TH.
