In this study, we will evaluate the blood levels of cold stress hormones – hormones that are produced during cold exposure – in children after cardiac arrest. Laboratory studies suggest that cold stress hormones may help protect the brain from injury. Sometimes, after a cardiac arrest, children are cooled in order to help protect the brain. We are investigating whether cold stress hormones may contribute to brain protection in patients who are cooled. This may lead to new treatments for patients to help protect the brain after cardiac arrest.
This is a retrospective study that involves blood samples that have already been obtained from children who suffered a cardiac arrest and were treated in the ICU.
