Hi, my name is Sjoukje Nutma. I studied Medicine at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen and obtained my master’s degree in 2014. After that I gained more experience in working as a medical doctor on the neurology department and the intensive care in Medisch Centrum Leeuwarden. Since neurology has always intrigued me the most, I applied for a neurology residency and in january 2017 I started this residency in Medisch Spectrum Twente in Enschede. In july 2018 I started combining this with working as a PhD student at the Clinical Neurophysiology (CNPH) department with prof. dr. ir. Van Putten (my promotor) and dr. Hofmeijer (my co-promotor). The GRECO trial combines the two fields in medicine I like: neurology and intensive care medicine. In this research project we will focus on neuroprotective measures and cerebral outcome of comatose patients after cardiac arrest. Currently there are no effective treatments to improve brain recovery in postanoxic coma. This stresses the importance of this study and makes it also quite exciting to be a part of this project.
