Intensive care unit mortality after cardiac arrest: the relative contribution of shock and brain injury in a large cohort
ObjectiveBrain injury is well established as a cause of early mortality after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), but postresuscitation shock also contributes to these deaths. This study aims toExpand

Predicting survival with good neurological recovery at hospital admission after successful resuscitation of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: the OHCA score.
AIMS Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is common and carries a bleak prognosis. Early prediction of unfavourable outcomes is difficult but crucial to improve resource allocation. The aim of thisExpand
