OBJECTIVE Optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) measured on a head computed tomography (CT) has been suggested as a potential prognostic factor for poor neurological outcome after cardiac arrest. We performed a single centre retrospective cohort analysis to further investigate this relationship. METHODS All patients >18 years of age admitted to St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver, Canada who survived a cardiac arrest and had a CT scan of the head within 48 hours were included in the analysis… CONTINUE READING
