AIM Patients' outcomes after prolonged cardiac arrest are often grim. The aim of this study was to find the longest period of normovolemic, normothermic, cardiac arrest no-flow after which good neurologic outcome can be achieved with conventional therapies. METHODS Swine (28-37 kg) were subjected to ventricular fibrillation cardiac arrest, after which they were randomized into groups with 13 min (n=6), 15 min (n=6), or 17 min (n=6) of untreated cardiac arrest followed by advanced life support… CONTINUE READING
