Despite the widespread adoption of targeted temperature management (TTM), coma after cardiac arrest remains a common problem with a high proportion of patients suffering substantial disability. Prognostication after cardiac arrest, particularly the identification of patients with likely good outcome, remains difficult.

Name: Neurocritical care
To predict neurological outcome following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) using a combination of hemoglobin (Hb) and low-flow duration (LFD).
Successful resuscitation from cardiac arrest depends on provision of adequate blood flow to vital organs generated by cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Measurement of end-tidal expiratory pressure ...
Most interventional and observational studies include cardiac arrest from cardiac origin. However, an increasing proportion of cardiac arrest results from an extra-cardiac origin, mainly respiratory. ...
Cardiac arrest etiology is often assigned according to the Utstein template, which differentiates medical (formerly "presumed cardiac") from other causes. These categories are poorly defined, contain ...
Pediatric cardiac arrest is a significant cause of death and neurologic disability; however, there is a paucity of literature specifically evaluating the utility of prognostic factors in the pediatric...
Each year around 2000 children have a cardiac arrest in the United Kingdom (UK) and approximately one fifth are admitted to Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. Many of these children eventually...
Early prognostication in resuscitated cardiac arrest (CA) patients, within the first day after admission in the intensive care unit (ICU), remains difficult. Optic nerve sheath diameter (O...
This will be a prospective observational study of adult primary cardiac arrest patients presenting to Shands Emergency Department following ROSC or actively in cardiac arrest with subseque...
Several studies show how patients with hyperoxia after cardiac arrest has increased mortality, but the association of hyperoxia before cardiac arrest and myocardial damage has never been i...
In this study, we want to find out whether the recognition of cardiac arrest using a smart watch is feasible or not. If this idea is possible, the recognition of cardiac arrest using the s...
Occurrence of heart arrest in an individual when there is no immediate access to medical personnel or equipment.
The omission of atrial activation that is caused by transient cessation of impulse generation at the SINOATRIAL NODE. It is characterized by a prolonged pause without P wave in an ELECTROCARDIOGRAM. Sinus arrest has been associated with sleep apnea (REM SLEEP-RELATED SINUS ARREST).
Cessation of heart beat or MYOCARDIAL CONTRACTION. If it is treated within a few minutes, heart arrest can be reversed in most cases to normal cardiac rhythm and effective circulation.
A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia that is characterized by uncoordinated extremely rapid firing of electrical impulses (400-600/min) in HEART VENTRICLES. Such asynchronous ventricular quivering or fibrillation prevents any effective cardiac output and results in unconsciousness (SYNCOPE). It is one of the major electrocardiographic patterns seen with CARDIAC ARREST.
A neuropsychological test designed to assess different memory functions. It may incorporate an optional cognitive exam (Brief Cognitive Status Exam) that helps to assess memory related cognitive function.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
