Postresuscitation group
Adults (age over 16 years old) who have survived from nontraumatic cardiac arrest and admitted to ICU.
Sepsis group
Adults (age over 16 years old) who satisfy the sepsis criteria (SIRS>=2 and infection is suspected for a cause) and admitted to the ICU.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 1-month mortality [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    All cause mortality within 1-month

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Hospital mortality [ Time Frame: until hospital discharge, an expected average of 2 weeks ]
    All cause mortality during hospitalization

  2. ICU length of stay [ Time Frame: Until ward transfer or discharge, an expected average of 7 days ]
  3. Favorable neurologic outcome [ Time Frame: at discharge, an expected average of 2 weeks and at 6-month ]

    Favorable neurologic outcome is used for outcome measure in postresuscitation patients only.

    Favorable neurologic outcome means cerebral performance category 1 and 2. This outcome is measured at discharge and 6-month after admission.

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
Patients sera at ICU admission, day-1, day-3 and day-7 are stored in deep freezer.
