[Potential risks of high-dose adrenaline for resuscitation following short-term heart arrest in animal experiments].

Abstract

We compared the haemodynamic effects of epinephrine 10 micrograms/kg iv (group A, n = 8) and 50 micrograms/kg iv (group B, n = 8) in a porcine CPR-model after 3 min of circulatory arrest induced by ventricular fibrillation. All animals of group A were successfully resuscitated after 4.9 +/- 2.8 min and 2.8 +/- 1.6 defibrillations, in group B only 6 of 8… (More)
