Measurement of Core Temperatures During Therapeutic Hypothermia (TH)
The purpose of this study is to determine that the measurements of rectal and bladder temperature are correctly consistent with core temperature by using the pulmonary artery catheter during therapeutic hypothermia; rapid cooling, maintenance, and slow rewarming phase.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Core Temperature Measurement in Therapeutic Hypothermia: Tympanic Membrane, Bladder and Rectal Versus Pulmonary Artery Methods|
- Difference of core temperature between rectum, bladder, esophagus and pulmonary artery [ Time Frame: During 24 hour ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||February 2011|
|Study Completion Date:||May 2012|
|Primary Completion Date:||February 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
The guidelines of therapeutic hypothermia(TH)are rapid cooling, from normothermia to mild hypothermia(32~34 degree), maintenance, and slow rewarming phase. If core temperature maintained below 32 degree during TH, som complications will be developed, such as arrythmia, hypotension, cold diuresis, coagulopathy, and so on. Therefore correct measurement of core temperature during TH is very important process for successful post cardiac arrest care. we will know that rectal or bladder temperature are really reflect the core temperature during TH for post cardiac arrest care, especially rapid cooling phase, maintenance phase, and slow rewarming phase, respectively.
