The Glasgow coma score (GCS) during days 1-6 after cardiac arrest was used to predict neurological outcome in 360 resuscitated victims of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. A predictive rule based on the best GCS of 216 patients resuscitated in 1983-84 (prediction group) was constructed, and its predictive power was tested on 133 patients treated in 1985 (test group). Neurological outcome was correctly predicted 2 days after cardiac arrest in 80% of the prediction group, with a best GCS of 10 or… CONTINUE READING
