Cardiac Arrest clinical trials at UCSF

5 in progress, 3 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • buRst-supprESsion TO Stop Refractory Status Epilepticus Post-cardiac Arrest

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    RESTORE is a randomized clinical trial investigating the safety and feasibility of using EEG treatment targets (burst suppression vs. seizure suppression) for post-cardiac arrest refractory status epilepticus treatment.

  • Influence of Cooling Duration on Efficacy in Cardiac Arrest Patients

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    A multicenter, randomized, adaptive allocation clinical trial to determine if increasing durations of induced hypothermia are associated with an increasing rate of good neurological outcomes and to identify the optimal duration of induced hypothermia for neuroprotection in comatose survivors of cardiac arrest.

  • Pediatric Influence of Cooling Duration on Efficacy in Cardiac Arrest Patients (P-ICECAP)

    open to eligible people ages up to 17 years

    This is a multicenter trial to establish the efficacy of cooling and the optimal duration of induced hypothermia for neuroprotection in pediatric comatose survivors of cardiac arrest. The study team hypothesizes that longer durations of cooling may improve either the proportion of children that attain a good neurobehavioral recovery or may result in better recovery among the proportion already categorized as having a good outcome.

  • Naloxone for Opioid Associated Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The investigator's long-term goal is to conduct Naloxone for Opioid Associated out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest (NOPACA), a randomized, double blind, controlled trial to determine the efficacy of naloxone vs. placebo in Opioid Associated out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest. The investigative team plan to randomize patients in OHCA to early naloxone administration vs. placebo after initial resuscitation and measure ROSC and survival. Challenges to designing NOPACA include uncertainty regarding: 1) the available pool of participants and number of EMS agencies needed to meet enrollment targets; 2) acceptability among patients, EMS and Emergency Medicine provider stakeholders, and 3) estimates of the study outcomes needed for sample size estimates. Toward obtaining the necessary information to design NOPACA, the investigators propose a pilot RCT of participants at high risk for OA-OHCA to verify a reasonable recruitment rate; treatment fidelity and acceptability; and adequate retention and measurement of outcomes at follow up. The investigators propose incorporating hypothesis testing of the feasibility outcomes to determine progression to a definitive trial.

  • PeRampanel fOr Status ePilEpticus pRophylaxis Post-cardiac Arrest

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Brain injury is the main cause of death and disability for patients surviving cardiac arrest resuscitation and seizures are diagnosed in up to a third of these patients. We are proposing a pilot randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial to evaluate the safety and feasibility of perampanel use for PCARSE prevention after cardiac arrest.
