Abstract: This article provides nurses with up-to-date evidence empowering them to contribute to the 33[degrees]C versus 36[degrees]C discussion in postcardiac arrest targeted temperature management (TTM). Presented in debate format, this article will address the pros and cons of various target temperatures as it examines the evidence around TTM and applies it to clinical scenarios.
