- N Engl J Med. 2013 Dec 5;369(23):2197-206.
Rationale for inclusion: A well referenced paper helping to dial in the perfect temperature goal. Its findings suggested perhaps the real goals of targeted temperature management are to simply prevent hyperthermia.

Rationale for inclusion: This paper is the basis for therapeutic hypothermia that has been extrapolated into in-hospital and traumatic arrests as well.
