BACKGROUND AND METHODS: The present investigation was aimed at assessing the dynamic behaviour of lactate values during hypothermia in 33 patients with cardiac arrest.
RESULTS: Fifteen patients died during intensive care stay (15/33, 45.5%). When compared to survivors, they were older (survivors 50.7 ± 14.7 vs. non-survivors 70.1 ± 10.4 years, p
CONCLUSION: In our series, lactate values measured during hypothermia hold a prognostic role in these patients since they are related to in-ICCU death.
