BACKGROUND Analysis of the electrocardiogram (ECG) can to a certain extent predict if a cardiac arrest patient in ventricular fibrillation will get return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) if defibrillated. The accuracy of such methods determines how useful it is clinically and for retrospective analysis. METHODS AND RESULTS We have tested the accuracy of a new shock outcome prediction algorithm that is the first to use an updating algorithm capable of learning from previous shocks within a… CONTINUE READING
