Does Induce Therapeutic Hypothermia Impact Neurologic Function And Improve Patients Out Name Institution Does Induce Therapeutic Hypothermia Impact Neurologic Function And Improve Patients Out Introduction Therapeutic hypothermia has emerged as one of the most common medical practice used in dealing with neurologic outcomes especially patients experiencing cardiac arrest.
This paper is going to conduct a review on past prognosis assessments on patients under therapeutic hypothermia treatment. The review is aimed at proving that therapeutic hypothermia does impact neurologic functions thus improving the conditions of patients. Over the years, therapeutic hypothermia has stood out as the most appropriate care that can be given to patients with neurologic outcomes one of them being cardiac arrest. History The use of induced hypothermia following a neurologic condition such as cardiac arrest was first reported between 1950’s and 1960’s. At this early stages of its discovery, the target temperature in the process were lower in comparison to those used in the current times as well as the duration and method used although the results are more so the same. Despite this realization, the findings in the past were inconclusive as well as higher complication rates being observed. Until 1990’s, there were no further hypothermia investigations as a resuscitative measure. After this juncture, laboratory studies were used to demonstrate the benefits associated with hypothermia. ...
