Importance: Prognostication of neurologic outcome after cardiac arrest is an important but challenging aspect of patient therapy management in critical care units. Objective: To determine whether serum neurofilament light chain NFL levels can be used for prognostication of neurologic outcome after cardiac arrest. Design, setting and participants: Prospective clinical biobank study of data from the randomized Target Temperature Management After Cardiac Arrest trial, an international, multicenter study with 29 participating sites. Patients were included between November 11, , and January 10, A total of unconscious patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest of presumed cardiac origin were eligible. Exposures: Serum NFL concentrations analyzed at 24, 48, and 72 hours after cardiac arrest with an ultrasensitive immunoassay.

Vasovagal Syncope My best friend "Dirk" can easily be picked out of a crowd. His 6'7 stature, impressive muscle mass, very blond hair, big blue eyes, and booming voice cause many people to stare at him-once, in Europe, a Japanese couple asked if they could take a picture of him. Addicted to weight lifting and athletics, my friend does not always enjoy admitting that he is a computer engineer-yes, my year-old buddy is still afraid of the geek label. There is something else to which Dirk. International Journal of Epidemiology, 34 2 , They suggest that the PNS being properly regulated is an important contributing factor.

Oxygen is vital to a beating, healthy heart because it is needed to perform cellular respiration in order to pump the blood. When there is no oxygen being transported to the heart, the heart cannot pump blood, and eventually after being inactive, the heart tissue dies. This results in a heart attack. Heart attacks can be diagnosed before it is too late. One method of diagnosis is through a blood test.
Malignant hypothermia is a disease, caused by a bad reaction of anesthetics. This disease causes an immensely rapid temperature rise and extreme muscle contractions. MH malignant hypothermia is passed down through families and inherited by one parent carrying it giving it to the child.
