Timothy Mader, MD, receives two-year grant from National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute

October 21, 2019

Congratulations to Timothy Mader, MD, Professor of Emergency Medicine at UMMS-Baystate, on receiving a two-year, $222,000 grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

“A contemporary subgroup analysis of cooling after non-shockable cardiac arrest: insights from a large registry” seeks to determine if whole body cooling to reduce brain damage in patients recovering from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is appropriate in those individuals who did not experience ventricular fibrillation. Baystate has the most active therapeutic hypothermia/targeted temperature management program for survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in the region.

“Knowing if the effect of therapeutic hypothermia/targeted temperature management after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is modified by rhythm classification will help us better care for our post-cardiac arrest patients,” says Dr. Mader.
