Note that this randomized trial of two cooling strategies for patients suffering out-of-hospital cardiac arrest found similar functional outcomes with a temperature target of 36 versus 33 degrees C. Overall mortality was still high, with just over 50% of both groups surviving to the end of follow-up (186 days).
