Thank you for your comments!
As a pediatric intensivist here in the Carilion system, I have been working with the adult units on the use of therapeutic hypothermia and have been trying to determine to which of the pediatric post arrest patients we should offer this modality. In my reveiw of the literature, I find no published evidence that cooling will benefit the typical post arrest pediatric patient but did find information about two ongoing national multicenter trials looking at this. Those studies have not been ongoing very long and do not propose to have final data before 2015. Did the lectures you attended make any comment about therapeutic hypothermia? What were the findings?
