Therapeutic Hypothermia Treatment


As part of its advanced and high-quality care for Emergency Department patients, Saint Clare’s now offers a Therapeutic Hypothermia program.

During a cardiac arrest, while the heart is not pumping effectively, the brain is left without oxygen. This can lead to cell damage. After a successful resuscitation, the brain also faces more damage from chemical reactions that occur when the blood starts to flow again.

Induced hypothermia lowers body temperature below normal in patients at risk for ischemic brain injury following a period of insufficient blood flow due to cardiac arrest or stroke. This groundbreaking treatment is the new standard of care for post sudden cardiac arrest and has been shown to significantly improve long-term survival and quality of patient outcomes.
