Abstract

A 62-year-old man collapses on the street and is found to be in cardiac arrest. He is resuscitated at the scene by emergency medical personnel, but he is comatose. Targeted temperature management, which involves cooling the patient to a core body temperature of 32 to 34°C for 24 hours, is recommended.
