Brain Test after Cardiac Arrest
Every year approximately 800 people survive an out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) in Denmark. Around 30% to 50% of those will develop cognitive deficits from hypoxic injuries to the brain.
This project aims to develop and validate a digital screening tool for cognitive deficits in the OHCA
Too many OHCA patients are discharged without the knowledge of their, often subtle but significant, cognitive deficits, which lead to problems with stress, identity, social and work-related issues that add to the personal and societal costs.
This project aims to:
1) to develop a Digital Test Battery (DTB)
2) to validate DTB as a screening tool for cognitive deficits in the OHCA
population and compare it to existing pen and paper (P&P) screening tools.
3) to assess the predictive validity of DTB in relation to return to work, quality of life, psychological distress and self-reported problems.
