It appears that this woman underwent a cooling or hypothermia
protocol for a cardiac arrest; usually the intention is to bring the person's core body temperature to 32 C, and once that is reached (for most patients around 18-24 hours) then a gradual rewarming process starts. Neurologic function cannot be accurately assessed until rewarming has been completed and sedation has been weaned off.
