Therapeutic hypothermia for the second time: is it possible?

Abstract

Therapeutic hypothermia has demonstrated an improvement in neurological outcomes in patients who experience sudden cardiac arrest. The benefit of this therapy is documented only after its implementation in a one-time basis. We report the case of a patient who suffered two events of sudden cardiac arrest separately in a short period of time and who underwent therapeutic hypothermia after each episode with outstanding results.
