Neurorehabilitation for cognitive impairment after cardiac arrest: A randomised controlled trial.
More than 30,000 Australians suffer an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) every year.
The lack of blood flow to brain cells during cardiac arrest may result in brain injury leading to persistent neurological deficits and poor functional outcomes.
Improvements in the emergency response and hospital care mean the chances of surviving a cardiac arrest in…
Improving outcomes following cardiac arrest
Despite significant advances in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease, emergencies of cardiac arrest and heart attack continue to be a major challenge, with unacceptably high mortality and morbidity.
Even following successful resuscitation, many people do not recover due to the inflammation caused by a lack of blood flow.
This study will build on…
