INTRODUCTION Electroencephalogram (EEG) monitoring in patients treated with therapeutic hypothermia after cardiac arrest may assist in early outcome prediction. Quantitative EEG (qEEG) analysis can reduce the time needed to review long-term EEG and makes the analysis more objective. In this study, we evaluated the predictive value of qEEG analysis for neurologic outcome in postanoxic patients. METHODS In total, 109 patients admitted to the ICU for therapeutic hypothermia after cardiac arrest… CONTINUE READING
