OBJECTIVES To determine the predictive ability of sensory evoked potential recordings in nontraumatic comatose patients. To evaluate the hypothesis that patients with bilateral absent cortical responses ultimately die despite long-term intensive care treatment. DESIGN Prospective cohort study. SETTING Medical intensive care unit (ICU) of a university(More)
BACKGROUND Hypoxic-ischaemic brain damage in cardiac arrest survivors is global, but postmortem histology could identify parts of the brain that are selectively vulnerable to ischaemia, comprising the thalamus and cortex. We hypothesized that hypoxic-ischaemic brain damage increases along the afferent sensory pathway with a stepwise decrease of detectable(More)
We complete the analysis of meson resonance contributions to chiral low-energy constants of O(p 4) by including all quark-antiquark bound states with orbital angular momentum ≤ 1. Different tensor meson Lagrangians used in previous work are shown to produce the same final results for the low-energy constants once QCD short-distance constraints are properly(More)
