          Abstract

          Bilateral absent N20 responses of median nerve somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) reliably predict poor prognosis after cardiac arrest. However, the studies supporting this fact were carried out before hypothermia was established as standard treatment. Recent evidence suggests that hypothermia treatment affects the predictive value of clinical findings in cardiac arrest patients, raising the question whether the predictive value of N20 responses has changed as well.
