Study Short Title: Cardiac Arrest Resuscitation EEG Study

Study Long Title: Cardiac Arrest Resuscitation EEG Study Phase II B

IRB number: NA_00010222

Funding Source: NIH 2R44HL070129-04A1 and Infinite Biomedical Technologies, LLC

Summary of Trial: Using a recently FDA approved, innovative EEG machine, the CHI (Cortical Health Index) Monitor, our goals are to:

  1. simplify EEG readings to help predict neurological outcome after cardiac arrest
  2. provide real-time tracking of global ischemia/brain injury and response to therapy.
    Providing this information to the cardiology team immediately post-resuscitation will help identify patients who may benefit from aggressive intervention and aid in prognostication.

Inclusions:

  1. Age 18 and older
  2. Cardiac arrest with return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC)
  3. No scalp defects or trauma that would prevent EEG lead attachment.
  4. 4-6 hour window from arrest to EEG

Exclusions:
Non-English speakers, inmates
