Irreversible brain damage resulting in sustained post-arrest coma is a most serious complication of CA in resuscitated patients. In this study we present the neuropathological examination performed on 17 brains of patients who had remained unconscious for variable post-resuscitation periods and died after survival time ranging from 1 day to 36 days(More)
