The delivery of targeted temperature management (TTM) is recommended for cardiac arrest patients with specific initial rhythms after the return of spontaneous circulation. Some hospitals have established institutional TTM protocols based on national guidelines. Yet, successful implementation of an institutional TTM protocol depends on the nurses’ knowledge and skills.

The study’s purpose was to compare the level of post-training knowledge, psychomotor skills, confidence and satisfaction among nurses taught the delivery of TTM with video lecture versus high fidelity simulation.
