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.


  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
