Abstract

Patients admitted to an intensive care unit after cardiac arrest often suffer from severe brain injury. This injury worsens further after restoration of circulation due to the cascade of reactions in the brain. Neuroprotective therapies aim to diminish this secondary brain injury, thereby targeting at a better outcome. Several new large international studies will start soon, next to two smaller national phase II studies. In this paper we describe the new studies and invite Dutch intensive care units to join.
