BACKGROUND Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is associated with a poor prognosis and predicting outcome is complex with neurophysiological testing and repeated clinical neurological examinations as key components of the assessment. In this study we examine the association between different electroencephalography (EEG) patterns and mortality in a clinical cohort of OHCA-patients. METHODS From 2002 to 2011 consecutive patients were admitted to an intensive-care-unit after resuscitation from… CONTINUE READING
