Mild induced hypothermia in patient with acute myocardial infarction after cardiac arrest

Barbara Zawiślak, Rafał Depukat, Salech Arif, Dariusz Dudek


Mild induced hypothermia is recommended by both European and American cardiological associations as well as European
and Polish Recuscitation Council as a standard therapy in comatose patients resuscitated from cardiac arrest. We report
a case of a 60 year-old male patient resuscitated from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest treated with mild hypothermia. The use
of hypothermia improved patient’s neurological prognosis and outcome by preventing severe brain injury.
