Abstract

Despite recent improvement in post-resuscitation care, about 50% of patients resuscitated from cardiac arrest die or have poorneurological prognosis.1Severe neurological damage due to post-anoxic brain injury is common after cardiac arrest and is a majorcause of post-resuscitation mortality. Early prognostication isimportant in patients who are comatose after resuscitation from cardiac arrest because inappropriate treatment in patients with nochance of a good neurological recovery can be avoided and relativescan be provided with correct information.
