Local Emergency Responders are using a new treatment called Therapeutic Hypothermia in hopes of saving lives.
The new treatment calls for Emergency Medical Teams like KFD and Rural Metro to reduce to body's core temperature in cases of cardiac arrest.
The procedure has been shown to increase survival and reduce disability after a patient in resuscitated.
Officials said they monitored studies on this procedure for a few years and said it improves outcomes for the patients.
Therapeutic Hypothermia is recommended by the American Heart Association.
