280.033 Hypothermia for Adult Out-of-Hospital Resuscitation. The Texas Medical Association supports the concept and basic benefit of mild therapeutic hypothermia for successful out-of-hospital resuscitation, and will (1) work with multiple stakeholders to further evaluate current availability and possible risk-management issues surrounding this treatment modality, (2) support research into the broader applicability of mild therapeutic hypothermia as it impacts other neurological disorders and support the development of a national registry to track data of such cases, and (3) provide ongoing educational articles and seminars for members on this emerging treatment modality (CSA Rep. 2-A-08; amended CSPH Rep. 5-A-18).
