Patient & Participant Research Opportunities
To improve the health of cardiac arrest survivors, the Critical Care and Resuscitation Program at NYU Langone is conducting research studies to understand the psychological consequences of cardiac arrest.
Currently, we are recruiting eligible participants into two novel studies:
- A Mixed Methods Study of the Experiences and Psychological Consequences of Adult Cardiac Arrest
- Children’s Awareness and Long-Term Quality of Life: A Mixed Methods Study of Pediatric Critical Care Unit (PCCU) Experiences
These studies will look at adults and children alike who have regained consciousness after experiencing cardiac arrest or a life-threatening illness and who may report memories, experiences, and awareness during unconsciousness. These experiences, which have sometimes been referred to as so-called “near-death experiences,” may include peaceful feelings, a perception of a tunnel or light, seeing relatives, a life review, or generally positive emotions. These studies aim to identify and interview adults and children who have experienced memories or cognitive changes after a cardiac arrest.
