In contrast, COX-2 is referred to as an 'inducible isoform', which is believed to be undetectable in most normal tissues, but can(More)
Our aim was to evaluate electrocardiographic (ECG) differences between survivors and non-survivors of out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). The study included 76 patients that suffered from OHCA. In all patients, serum arterial lactate was obtained on admission to the intensive care unit was obtained as an index of ischemia during cardiac arrest and(More)
