But the data did not include those who remained undiagnosed or treated (Egan, Blind, Dunder, de Graeff, Hummer, Bourcier, & Rosebraugh, 2014, p.). This trend poses a serious threat to human by exposing to different health related problems, including kidney failure, vision problems, and long-term effect of heart, nerves and blood vessels disorders, which may ultimately a contributing factor for a high rate of morbidity and mortality.

Based on two studies done in 2002 the Advanced Life Support (ALS) Task Force of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) suggested that “unconscious adult patients with spontaneous circulation after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest should be cooled to 32°C to 34°C for 12 to 24 hours when the initial rhythm was ventricular fibrillation (VF)” (Writing Group, Nolan, Morley, Vanden, Hickey, Members of the Advanced Life Support Task Force et al., 2003, p. 118). They also stated it could be beneficial for other rhythms as well. This was the first big step in using hypothermia in the critical care setting. The current protocol still uses that recommendation.
