INTRODUCTION Non-invasive near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) offers the possibility to determine regional cerebral oxygen saturation (rSO2) in patients with cardiac arrest. Limited data from recent studies indicate a potential for early prediction of neurological outcome. METHODS Sixty cardiac arrest patients were prospectively enrolled, 22 in-hospital(More)
BACKGROUND Mild therapeutic hypothermia alters the validity of a number of parameters currently used to predict neurological outcome after cardiac arrest and resuscitation. Thus, additional parameters are needed to increase certainty of early prognosis in these patients. A promising new approach is the determination of the gray-white-matter ratio (GWR) in(More)
BACKGROUND Noninvasive regional cerebral oxygen saturation (rSO2) measurement using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) might inform on extent and duration of cerebral hypoxia during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). This information may be used to guide resuscitation efforts and may carry relevant early prognostic information. METHODS We prospectively(More)
