From: Serial soluble neurofilament heavy chain in plasma as a marker of brain injury after cardiac arrest

  Good outcome, n = 48 Poor outcome, n = 42 P value
Age (median, IQR) 62 (50-73) 71 (52-78) 0.062
Male sex 37 (88%) 26 (62%) 0.166
Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest 41 (85%) 36 (86%) 1.000
Initial rhythm VT/VF (n = 85) 35 (78%) 23 (58%) 0.001
Cardiac cause 39 (81%) 23 (55%) 0.011
  1. n = 90, if not otherwise stated
  2. Good outcome is defined as a best cerebral performance categories scale 1 to 2 during six months follow up; P value from Mann Whitney U test (age), Fisher's exact test for remaining comparisons.
  3. IQR, inter quartile range; VT/VF, pulse-less ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation.
