Pediatric Influence of Cooling duration on Efficacy in Cardiac Arrest Patients
Registered with ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT05376267
NIH Project Number: UG3-HL159134 / U24 HL159132
This is a multicenter trial to establish the efficacy of cooling and the optimal duration of induced hypothermia for neuroprotection in pediatric comatose survivors of cardiac arrest.
The study team hypothesizes that longer durations of cooling may improve either the proportion of children that attain a good neurobehavioral recovery or may result in better recovery among the proportion already categorized as having a good outcome.
