How well do patients who have received therapeutic hypothermia after cardiac arrest
fare? In a video interview, Kevin N. Sheth,
MD, chief of the Division of Neurocritical Care and Emergency Neurology and director of the Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit at Yale New Haven Hospital, discusses a Mayo Clinic study that found that a significant number are able to return to work and have normal cognitive status. He offers an analysis about why these findings on long-term outcomes are important for the field of neurocritical care.
