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:
- simplify EEG readings to help predict neurological outcome after cardiac arrest
- 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.
- Age 18 and older
- Cardiac arrest with return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC)
- No scalp defects or trauma that would prevent EEG lead attachment.
- 4-6 hour window from arrest to EEG
