Table 5 Relationship between outcome, neurohysiological, fMRI, and vegetative reactivity during painful electrical stimulation at one month after cardiac arrest

From: Pain-related somatosensory evoked potentials and functional brain magnetic resonance in the evaluation of neurologic recovery after cardiac arrest: a case study of three patients

Patient Outcome fMRI MLCEP N20/P25 Reactivity BP Reactivity
1 Good Cortical yes yes yes
2 MCS SI no yes yes
3 VS Sub-cortical no no yes
  1. MLCEP: middle latency cortical evoked potential
  2. BP: blood pressure
  3. MCS: minimally conscious state
  4. VS: vegetative state
  5. SI: primary somatosensory cortex
