2022 Department of Medicine Grand Rounds | Targeted Temperature Management (TTM) After Cardiac Arrest
Targeted temperature management is an active treatment that tries to achieve and maintain a specific body temperature in a person for a specific duration of time in an effort to improve outcome following cardiac arrest. It has shown to improve 90 day survival. It has been used in most major medical centers. One of the difficulties has been purchasing the equipment and educating the staff in proper use of it.
Difficulties in obtaining the equipment and educating the ICU staff has been a major barrier, therefore, education through such lectures will facilitate to close this gap. Also lack of knowledge about this equipment decreases its use, which directly affects the outcome of patients who are status post cardiac arrest.
Medical and the nursing staff.
- Identify and understand the definition of targeted temperature management.
- Assess the physiology of post cardiac arrest.
- Outline how the equipment/arctic sun works and how to operate and trouble shoot it.
- Examine the data on survival post cardiac arrest with and without this system.
- Discuss possible barriers and biases which may impact patient care (i.e., race, ethnicity, language, gender identity/orientation, age, socioeconomic status, attitudes, feelings, or other characteristics).
