  Purpose

This study will involve the use of therapeutic hypothermia. This prospective cohort pilot study will evaluate the clinical performance of a new device, the ThermoSuit™ System, to achieve therapeutic hypothermia in comatose patients following resuscitation from cardiac arrest, and the impact of the vasodilator, magnesium sulfate, on cooling performance and hemodynamics in these patients. The study hypothesis is that magnesium sulfate will significantly increase the rate of cooling.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cooling rate from start of cooling until a temperature of 34°C is reached [ Time Frame: Approximately 10 to 60 minutes after start of cooling ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time from collapse to a core temperature < 34.0°C [ Time Frame: Approximately 30 to 180 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percentage of time of the maintenance phase where the patient core temperature is between 32.0 and 34.0°C. [ Time Frame: Approximately 12 hours after initial cooling ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of shivering during cooling and maintenance of hypothermia [ Time Frame: Approximately 12 hours after cooling ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Duration of maintenance of hypothermia without supplemental cooling [ Time Frame: Approximately 12 hours after cooling ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Total number of days in ICU [ Time Frame: Generally less than 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Neurologic and physical status [ Time Frame: At discharge, 30 +/- 7 days, and 6 months +/- 15 days after initial treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Adverse events, serious adverse events, device-related adverse events [ Time Frame: From enrollment through 6-month follow-up ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Blood pressure and ECGs [ Time Frame: Through hospital stay ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Serum chemistry parameters (standard chemistry panel) [ Time Frame: Through hospital stay ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Hematology parameters [ Time Frame: Through hospital stay ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Survival [ Time Frame: To 24 hours, hospital discharge, and 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Rate of infection (respiratory, skin, and invasive access sites) and rate of sepsis [ Time Frame: During hospital stay ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 14

Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Comatose post-resuscitation patients cooled with ThermoSuit and treated with intravenous magnesium sulfate (30 mg per kg IV over 15 min).
Device: Cooling with ThermoSuit with Magnesium Sulfate Infusion
Cooling with LRS ThermoSuit within 15 minutes of intravenous Magnesium Sulfate infusion (30 mg/kg, added to 100 ml normal NaCl solution, given over 15 min).
Active Comparator: 2
Comatose post-resuscitation patients cooled with ThermoSuit and treated with intravenous normal saline.
Device: Cooling with ThermoSuit with Normal Saline Infusion
Cooling with LRS ThermoSuit within 15 minutes of normal saline infusion (100 ml of normal NaCl solution, given over 15 min).

Detailed Description:

This study will involve the use of therapeutic hypothermia, an accepted medical treatment recommended for comatose post resuscitation patients by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR), the American Heart Association (AHA), and the European Resuscitation Council. This prospective cohort pilot study will evaluate the clinical performance of a new device, the ThermoSuit™ System, to achieve therapeutic hypothermia in comatose patients following resuscitation from cardiac arrest, and the impact of the vasodilator, magnesium sulfate, on cooling performance and hemodynamics in these patients. 14 patients will be prospectively randomized to receive either magnesium sulfate or normal saline (placebo) in this study.
