Dear Challenge Organizers,
I would like to inquire about the method for determining whether we have recordings exceeding 72 hours after ROSC for a particular patient. Upon reviewing the PhysioNet website (https://physionet.org/content/i-care/2.0/
), I noticed that the start and end times in the EEG header files are indicated as the time after cardiac arrest
rather than ROSC. This has left me somewhat confused. Does this imply that the "ROSC time" is equivalent to the "time of cardiac arrest"? If not, I would be grateful if you could clarify how we should ascertain which files extend beyond the 72 hours following ROSC.
Also, how should we interpret "NaN" values in relation to targeted temperature management (TTM)? Do these indicate missing values, signifying the absence of available TTM data? Or do they suggest that no TTM procedure was performed?
Thank you again for all your efforts,
