  1. P-values are for simplified acute physiology score (SAPS) II versus high-sensitivity troponin T (hs-TnT) levels. CPC, cerebral performance categories; We did not calculate results for hospital mortality for measurements after 96 h due to the low number of events in this group (n =17) (total hospital mortality in the FINNRESUSCI laboratory substudy was 45 patients). AUC, area under the curve; Δ (delta), change in hs-TnT levels from admission to later timepoints; n.a., not applicable.
