Induction of Mild Hypothermia Following Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest
Study of the Use of Mild Hypothermia in Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest Using a Rapid Infusion of 2 Liters of Cold Normal Saline
The overall goal of this study is to determine whether initiating hypothermia in cardiac arrest patients as soon as possible in the field results in a greater proportion of patients who survive to hospital discharge compared to standard prehospital/field care.

In this study we will randomize 1,200 cardiac arrest patients who have return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) to hypothermia with rapid infusion of 2 liters of 4oC Normal Saline IV solution over 20 to 30 minutes, IV sedation and muscle paralysis or to standard of care following ROSC.

The primary objective of this study will be to determine whether induction of mild hypothermia using an infusion of cold normal saline will improve the proportion of patients who survive and are discharged awake from the hospital.

Hypothesis: In cardiac arrest patients who achieve ROSC in the field, initiation of hypothermia by infusion of cold normal saline will result in a greater proportion of cardiac arrest patients discharged awake from the hospital compared to standard care.

Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest
  • Other: Rapid infusion of 2 liters of 4oC normal saline
    Patients randomized to mild hypothermia will receive a rapid infusion of 2 liters of 4oC normal saline prior to arrival in the emergency room. Patients randomized to control will receive standard of care following resuscitation from cardiac arrest.
