Early Recovery Rate Neuroprognostication Following Cardiac Arrest
Neuroprognostication following cardiac arrest remains a challenge as does specification of varied treatment strategies during the recovery process. Most neurophysiological assessments are applied in a binary, diagnostic fashion. Poor neurologic outcome is well-correlated with a negative result. However, positive results are not necessarily predictive of good recovery. Our project aims to study the recovery pattern of certain neurophysiological responses over the early hospital admission time period to discern between patients who will achieve good neurologic outcome and those who will not, despite similar neurophysiological test results using current techniques. This project is well-suited to be carried out at Michigan Medicine's main hospital campus via the collaboration of an interdisciplinary research team.
