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.

Study flow chart of exclusion from and inclusion into the studyThe recommended time point of prognostication was 72 hours after rewarming, corresponding to approximately 108 hours after the cardiac arrest. The most probable cause of death according to the treating physician is reported (cerebral, multiorgan failure, or cardiovascular). Eight study sites were included since they had an EEG system that allowed export of EEG data that included notations regarding testing of reactivity.

Figure 2: Study flow chart of exclusion from and inclusion into the studyThe recommended time point of prognostication was 72 hours after rewarming, corresponding to approximately 108 hours after the cardiac arrest. The most probable cause of death according to the treating physician is reported (cerebral, multiorgan failure, or cardiovascular). Eight study sites were included since they had an EEG system that allowed export of EEG data that included notations regarding testing of reactivity.

Mentions: Exclusion and inclusion in the present study is described in figure 2. In 99 of the 202 randomized patients, 69 of whom awoke and 22 died before the recommended time point of prognostication, EEGs were not performed.
