Abstract

© 2017 The Acta Anaesthesiologica Scandinavica Foundation. Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd Background: Intensive care for comatose survivors of cardiac arrest includes targeted temperature management (TTM) to attenuate cerebral reperfusion injury. A recent multi-center clinical trial did not show any difference in mortality or neurological outcome between TTM targeting 33°C or 36°C after out-of-hospital-cardiac-arrest (OHCA). In our institution, the TTM target was changed accordingly from 34 to 36°C. The aim of this retrospective study was to analyze if this change had affected patient outcome. Methods: Intensive care registry and medical record data from 79 adult patients treated for OHCA with TTM during 2010 (n = 38; 34°C) and 2014 (n = 41; 36°C) were analyzed for mortality and neurological outcome were assessed as cerebral performance category. Student's t-test was used for continuous data and Fischer's exact test for categorical data, and multivariable logistic regression was applied to detect influence from patient factors differing between the groups. Results: Witnessed arrest was more common in 2010 (95%) vs. 2014 (76%) (P = 0.03) and coronary angiography was more common in 2014 (95%) vs. 2010 (76%) (P = 0.02). The number of patients awakening later than 72 h after the arrest did not differ. After adjusting for gender, hypertension, and witnessed arrest, neither 1-year mortality (P = 0.77), nor 1-year good neurological outcome (P = 0.85) differed between the groups. Conclusion: Our results, showing no difference between TTM at 34°C and TTM at 36°C as to mortality or neurological outcome after OHCA, are in line with the previous TTM-trial results, supporting the use of either target temperature in our institution.
