Post-cardiac arrest serum levels of glial fibrillary acidic protein for predicting neurological outcome.
To investigate serum levels of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) for evaluation of neurological outcome in cardiac arrest (CA) patients and compare GFAP sensitivity and specificity to that of more studied biomarkers neuron-specific enolas (NSE)

The influence of female gender on cardiac arrest outcomes: a systematic review of the literature.
Sudden cardiac arrest is an important cause of cardiovascular mortality. The impact of gender on the outcome of cardiac arrest is not clear and data about that is limited.

Correlation between serum neuron specific enolase and functional neurological outcome in patients of acute ischemic stroke.
The use of biomarkers to predict stroke prognosis is gaining particular attention nowadays. Neuron specific enolase (NSE), which is a dimeric isoenzyme of the glycolytic enzyme enolase and is found mainly in the neurons is one such biomarker.

Urine Output Changes During Postcardiac Arrest Therapeutic Hypothermia.
While commonly described, no studies have characterized cold-induced diuresis or rewarm anti-diuresis occurring during the delivery of therapeutic hypothermia (TH). We sought to determine urine output changes during the provision of postcardiac arres

Meta-analysis of neuron specific enolase in predicting pediatric brain injury outcomes.
A reliable biomarker has not been identified to predict the outcome of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in children. Therefore, the present systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to assess the association between neuron specific enolase (NSE) and trau

National trends in the use of postcardiac arrest therapeutic hypothermia and hospital factors influencing its use.
Therapeutic hypothermia (TH) in cardiac arrest continues to be underused in the United States. A better understanding of its utilization could inform future efforts and policies to improve utilization. This study investigates trends in TH use for in

The Outcome and Predictors of Mortality in Patients Therapeutically Cooled Postcardiac Arrest.
To review the outcomes of patients postcardiac arrest admitted to a metropolitan intensive care unit (ICU) where therapeutic hypothermia is practiced.
