Nimodipine has no beneficial effect on neurological outcome in a cardiopulmonary arrest model in the rat

Brain damage after resuscitation from cardiac arrest is believed to be related to calcium influx in ischaemic neurons and to postischaemic calcium-dependent vasospasm. We therefore evaluated the potentially protective effects of the calcium-entry blocker nimodipine in a cardiopulmonary arrest model in the rat. Male Wistar rats were anaesthetized with… CONTINUE READING
