Much of the earlier enthusiasm for therapeutic hypothermia has been tempered with disappointing trial results. This study examined cooling of the brain initiated during cardiopulmonary resuscitation and its impact on survival with good neurologic outcome in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

Trans-nasal evaporative intra-arrest cooling did not result in a statistically significant improvement in survival with good neurologic outcome.
