Abstract

<p>We herein report the clinical course of a patient who had a good neurological outcome despite severe anemia, high serum lactate levels, and a long period of time from cardiac arrest (CA) to extracorporeal cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) establishment. During the period of resuscitation, the tissue oxygenation index (TOI) values were measured continuously by a near-infrared spectroscopy monitoring device and were kept within the normal range. The TOI seems to reflect cerebral perfusion and the balance between the oxygen supply and demand in the brain during ECPR, thereby predicting the neurological outcome. Continuous TOI monitoring is useful for predicting the neurological outcome during ECPR. </p>
