Brief Summary:
In Kuopio University Hospital Department of Clinical Neurophysiology there have been designed a fast EEG electrode, that is suitable for acute emergency use. This study will address the clinical use of acute EEG with this fast EEG electrode in in- hospital patients who have been resuscitated due to cardiac arest. After resuscitation patients will be treated in ICU and EEG will be recorded for 24 hours.
