Therapeutic Hypothermia at Chilton Medical Center

Chilton Medical Center offers therapeutic hypothermia, a revolutionary treatment for sudden cardiac arrest. Endorsed by the American Heart Association, this "cooling therapy" slows the body's metabolic processes - minimizing damage to the brain and other organs. Treatment is usually induced in the Emergency Department and continued in the Intensive Care Unit for approximately 18-24 hours before the patient is gently warmed to normal body temperature. Studies confirm that this procedure increases survival rates and reduces brain damage in patients resuscitated after a cardiac arrest.
