Cognitive problems are common after cardiac arrest

17 abril 2015

Half of all patients who survive a cardiac arrest experience problems with cognitive functions such as memory and attention, a major international study shows. Surprisingly, however, a control group comprising heart attack patients had largely the same level of problems. This suggests that it is not only the cardiac arrest and the consequent lack of oxygen to the brain that is the cause of the patients’ difficulties.
