Abstract

High mortality among survivors of sudden cardiac arrest results from multiple pathophysiological pathways. Acting in different directions, mild therapeutic hypothermia (MTH) constitutes the only available treatment method that has been proven to increase the survival after sudden cardiac arrest, and has found its place in the European Society of Cardiology guidelines in 2012. Hypothermia, due to its complex mechanism, exerts both desirable and undesirable effects. Therefore the mode of its application and monitoring are still a matter of question. The aim of this paper is to summarize the current knowledge on MTH after sudden cardiac arrest.
