Hypothermic Cardiac Arrest Therapy

After a heart attack, lowering body temperature by a few degrees reduces swelling and protects the brain. This hypothermic cardiac arrest therapy has been shown to benefit patient recovery and improve neurological function after cardiac arrest.

Specialists at the Abington Heart and Vascular Institute – Jefferson Health and Jefferson Abington Hospital’s Emergency Trauma Center use several cooling technologies for this treatment. Hypothermic cardiac arrest therapy begins as quickly as possible after a heart attack.
