In this week's FLICNA Journal Club, Andrew Fester from Birmingham Children's Hospital will be discussing the evidence for therapeutic hypothermia after paediatric cardiac arrest.

- Extract: hypothermia should be avoided in the treatment of severe TBI to improve outcome but may be used to reduce ICP as a later-tier therapy at a level III recommendation. And not a Level II as before, since none of the studies of higher class had ICP control as a primary outcome and there were several safety concerns that were identified.

- Extract: "In patients who have been successfully resuscitated after cardiac arrest due to ventricular fibrillation, therapeutic mild hypothermia increased the rate of a favorable neurologic outcome and reduced mortality."

- Extract: "There is evidence from the 11 randomised controlled trials included in this systematic review (N = 1505 infants) that therapeutic hypothermia is beneficial in term and late preterm newborns with hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy"

- Extract: "The HYPERION trial is a multicenter, randomized, controlled, assessor-blinded, superiority trial that may provide an answer to an issue of everydayrelevance, namely, whether TTM is beneficial in comatose patients resuscitated after nonshockable cardiac arrest"

- Extract: "In unconscious survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest of presumed cardiac cause, hypothermia at a targeted temperature of 33°C did not confer a benefit as compared with a targeted temperature of 36°C"
