Hypothermia Induction Criteria

Patients who have been shown to benefit from induced hypothermia include
:
1. Those comatose post cardiac arrest – Start as soon as possible(earlier start=Better outcome-”Time is Brain”) 2. Those able to maintain a blood pressure, with or without vasopressors, after CPR. 3. Those in coma at the time of cooling. (Coma is defined as: not responding to verbal commands.(Brainstem reflexes and pathological/posturing movements are permissible.) 4. Patients may be and should be cooled and undergo Cardiac Cath/PCI simultaneously if indicated.
Facts:( NOT contraindications)
Patients in whom hypothermia may come with increased risk include those with:
1. Major head trauma – if clinical suspicion for possible head injury with arrest, a non-contrast head CT must be performed to rule out intracerebral hemorrhage prior to cooling. 2. Recent major surgery within 14 days - hypothermia may increase the risk of infection and bleeding 3. Systemic infection/sepsis- hypothermia alters immune function and is associated with an increased risk of 4. Patients in coma from other causes (drug intoxication, pre-existing coma prior to arrest) should not be cooled. 5. Patients with a known bleeding diathesis, or with active ongoing bleeding - hypothermia may impair the clotting system. Check PT/PTT, fibrinogen, D-dimer at admission. 6. Induced hypothermia after PEA, asystolic, or in-hospital arrest may be applied at the discretion of the treating
Note: patients may receive chemical thrombolysis, antiplatelet agents, or anticoagulants if necessary for
treatment of the primary cardiac condition.
