Cerebral resuscitation potentials for cardiac arrest.

Abstract

Permanent brain damage after cardiac arrest and resuscitation is determined by many factors, predominantly arrest (no-flow) time, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (low-flow) time, and temperature. Research since around 1970 into cardiopulmonary-cerebral resuscitation has attempted to mitigate the postischemic-anoxic encephalopathy. These efforts' results have… (More)
