Therapeutic hypothermia after cardiac arrest: A systematic review/meta-analysis exploring the impact of expanded criteria and targeted temperature

From Medscape:

The study intended to not only determine the advantage of an expanded utilization of TH, but also to depict the effect of a targeted temperature management on outcomes at discharge. Findings suggest that the utilization of TH after OHCA is connected with a survival and neuroprotective benefit, even when including patients with non–shockable rhythms, more lenient downtimes, unwitnessed arrest and/or persistent shock. This study found no confirmation to bolster one specific temperature over another during hypothermia.
