1. A method for predicting the likelihood of survival of a particular individual with intact neurological function during a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) procedure, comprising:
obtaining, with an electroencephalogram (EEG) sensor, an EEG signal of the particular individual during the CPR procedure;
obtaining, with a non-invasive sensor, a non-invasive measure of circulation of the particular individual during the CPR procedure; and
generating, with a processor, a prediction for the likelihood of survival of the particular individual with intact neurological function, based on a mathematical operation based on the EEG signal and the non-invasive measure of circulation.
