Table 2 TH using intravascular cooling.

From: Therapeutic hypothermia in cardiac arrest survivors: is rebound hyperthermia a significant issue with intravascular cooling?

Mean time from ROSC to target temperature of 32-34°C 8.3 hours
Mean duration of TH at temperature <34 °C 23.8 hours
Neuromuscular blockade use 28.5%
Rebound hyperthermia (>38°C) on cessation of active cooling 45.1%
Mean duration of rebound hyperthermia 8.6 hours
