  • AIM The aim of the present study was to assess whether the combination of epinephrine, vasopressin, and nitroglycerin would improve initial resuscitation success, 24-hour survival, and neurologic outcome compared with epinephrine alone in a swine model of asphyxial cardiac arrest (CA). MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective randomized experimental study was conducted at a laboratory research department. Twenty male Landrace/Large-White pigs 12 to 15 weeks of age were investigated.
