Bottom Line: Poor outcome was defined as best Cerebral Performance Category score 3-5 until 180 days.Specificity and sensitivity were not significantly affected by targeted temperature or sedation.A benign EEG was found in 1% of the patients with a poor outcome.

Highly malignant EEG patternsHighly malignant patterns used in the study defined according to the standardized EEG terminology by the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society. (A) Suppressed background (amplitude <10 μV, 100% of the recording) without discharges. (B) Suppressed background with superimposed continuous periodic discharges. (C) Burst-suppression (periods of suppression with amplitude <10 μV constituting >50% of the recording) without discharges. (D) Burst-suppression with superimposed discharges.
