BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Cardiac arrest patients treated with targeted temperature management (TTM) have improved neurological outcomes, however mortality remains high. EEG monitoring improves detection of malignant EEG patterns (MEPs), however their prevalence in patients surviving to hospital discharge is unknown. DESIGN/METHODS We examined consecutive cardiac arrest subjects who received TTM and continuous EEG monitoring at one academic center. Only subjects surviving to hospital discharge… CONTINUE READING
