Quantitative electroencephalography predicts neurologic outcomes in children after cardiac arrest

Takeaway

  • Features of quantitative electroencephalography (QEEG) can standardize EEG interpretation and predict neurologic outcomes in children who have had a cardiac arrest.

Why this matters

  • Following cardiac arrest, accurate and timely neurologic assessment is critical in making management decisions, but clinical and resuscitation variables may not optimally predict neurobehavioral outcomes.
