Intensive Care Bites

An ESICM Talk powered by the ICM Journal & the NEXT Committee


The aim of the ERC-ESICM guidelines on temperature control after cardiac arrest in adults is to provide evidence-based guidance in adults who are comatose after resuscitation from either in-hospital or out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, regardless of the underlying cardiac rhythm.

These guidelines replace the recommendations on temperature management after cardiac arrest included in the 2021 post-resuscitation care guidelines co-issued by the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) and the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM).

The invited experts of this podcast, Prof Sandroni and Prof Nolan, describe the methodology followed and explain the panel suggestions on guideline implementation and the identified priorities for future research.
