Critical Care Reviews Trials Results Meeting - The TTM2 Trial
Critical Care Reviews is delighted to announce the hosting of the much anticipated results of the TTM2 trial, on Wednesday night, June 16th, 20:15 to 22:00 UTC. As a follow up to the landmark TTM trial, comparing targeted temperature management of 33°C with 36°C in unconscious survivors of an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, TTM2 compares a target temperature of 33°C after cardiac arrest with normothermia and early treatment of fever (≥37.8°C). The trial background and results will be delivered by three members of the TTM2 trial team (Niklas Nielsen, Josef Dankiewicz & Gisela Lilja); the editorial will be given by Prof Stephen Bernard, the chief investigator of the original Australian hypothermia trial from 2002; and the panel discussion will include Prof Jerry Nolan (Editor-in-Chief Resuscitation journal and European Resuscitation Council member; Bath, England), Prof Kathy Rowan (Director of ICNARC, London, England), and Prof Catherine Hough (Intensivist & Researcher, Oregon, USA). As usual, this will be a free livestream on the CCR wesite, accessible to all without the need for registration. Please do share this information with your colleagues to maximise the dissemination of the results of this important trial.
