The purpose of this study is to create an international clinical data registry that will be used for current and future research projects involving the study of post-cardiac arrest patients and the clinical characteristics and prognostic factors that affect neurologic outcome. Our ultimate goal is to come up with a prediction model for prognostication in cardiac arrest, using multiple modalities that are already clinically in use, but in a more standardized fashion. Our hope is that these tools in combination will be able to more accurately predict outcome for patients initially comatose following cardiac arrest.
MOCHA is an observational prospective study analyzing different clinical parameters as predictors of neurological outcome in patients with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy.
Almost all survivors are eligible, regardless of pre-morbid clinical status, etiology of cardiac arrest, post-cardiac arrest neurological status, treatment, and even if the patient is not a chill alert.
The MOCHA study is currently recruiting sites. If interested, please contact the MOCHA study team:
