  3. 3. Cardiac Arrest• Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OOHCA)• 295,000 people annually in the US• 7.9% median survival rate• Anoxic encephalopathy and neurologic deficits• Therapeutic hypothermia (TH) clinical trials• ILCOR recommendation for TH after resuscitationLloyd-Jones D, Adams R, Carnethon M et al.

  9. 9. “Cool It” Methods Level 1 Heart Attack Program – STEMI transfers “Cool It” Program - regional TH system - Feb 2006 Inclusion Exclusion non-traumatic OOHCA  comatose before arrest ROSC within 60 min  DNR unresponsive  active bleeding cardiogenic shock all ages
  10. 10. “Cool It” Methods • Transfer patients  standardized protocols  ice during transfer • STEMI – immediate angiography and PCI • Arctic Sun® TH device • Target temperature 33 C for 24 hrs • Rewarming at 0.5 C/hr • Cerebral function at discharge
  11. 11. “Cool It” Patient Demographics• 103 patients (Feb 2006-Oct 2008)• 78 male, 25 female Asystole• Average age 62 years PEA• 76% transferred Vtach Vfib• 50% “Cool It” & STEMI• 40% cardiogenic shock

Methods Comparison HACA “Cool It”Cooling ActivationShivering PreventionProtocol Cooling Activation Protocol Shivering Prevention• no prehospital cooling • target temp – as soon as••• emergency Pancuronium mattress cooling device •• possible in the field, field, referring Atracurium • ice packs department hospital, in transfer• referring hospital, or in•• target temp IV bolus every two randomization •• Infusion - – early education TOF transfer• ice packs after 4 hrs • Arctic Sun® cooling device hrs monitoring& initiation recognition

  16. 16. Summary• “Cool It” protocol applied TH to high risk patients  cardiogenic shock  PEA & asystole• “Cool It” TH enhanced survival in HACA criteria patients• “Cool It” TH preserved neurologic and functional status in a broader patient population• “Cool It” survivors discharged with higher neurologic outcomes• “Cool It” patients cooled to target temperature in less time
  17. 17. Conclusions• OOHCA is a significant health issue• TH is a markedly underutilized treatment• “Cool It” TH program  high survival rate  high quality of life and cognitive and functional abilities• “Cool It” TH - early & organized treatment  standardized protocols  outstate education  rapid & early initiation of TH  multidisciplinary team  data collection and feedback• TH can effectively be applied to a higher risk patient population than previously examined• Neuroprotective adjunct to regional STEMI programs
