Abstract

Mild therapeutic hypothermia improves neurological outcomes after cardiac arrest by preserving brain function. It is currently under discussion the possibility that hypothermia may also provide a protective effect on cardiac function, in particular, by reducing the infarct size in patients with acute myocardial infarction complicated by cardiac arrest. Despite encouraging experimental and clinical data obtained so far may suggest a potential future indication in this population, routine use of therapeutic hypothermia in acute myocardial infarction patients needs further investigation and it is not currently recommended.
