AbstractObjectiveTo investigate the clinical value of video-electroencephalography (VEEG) and thermal stimulus on evaluating the prognosis of comatose patients after cardiopulmonary resuscitation.MethodsTwenty eight comatose patients with cardiopulmonary resuscitation were included in the department of ICU of the First Teaching Hospital of Fujian Medical University from February 2013 to March 2016. Of the included 28 patients, 20 cases died (death group) and 8 cases survived (survival group) after cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The VEEG, Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) and APACHE II score were recorded and compared between the death and survival group. The prediction value of death for VEEG, GCS and APACHE II were evaluated through sensitivity, specificity and area under the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve (AUC).ResultsGCS and APACHEH II score were statistical different between the death and survival group (P<0.05). With the increase of VEEG grading, the mortality rate of patients increased significantly (P<0.05). Predicting value of mortality for GCS, VEEG and APACHEH II were 57.69%, 61.54% and 71.43% respectively without statistical difference (P>0.05). The death prediction sensitivity and specificity for GCS were 67.0% and 85.0%, for APACHEH II were 95.1% and 85.0%, for VEEG were 100.0% and 85.2%. VEEG has the highest sensitivity, Specificity, coincidence rate and Kappa vale compared to GCS, and APACHEH II.ConclusionVideo-electroencephalography is a useful tool for predicting the death risk for patients who received cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
