Evaluation of Sodium Bicarbonate and Epinephrine in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
TLDR
The value of epinephrine in the treatment of asystole"5 and ventricular fibrillation697 has long been recognized but recommendations regarding dosage and mode of administration of various drugs used in resuscitation are primarily based on clinical impressions rather than on data from controlled experiments.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation : Pharmacological Interventions for Augmentation of Cerebral Blood Flow
Cardiac arrest results in immediate interruption of blood flow. The primary goal of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is to re-establish blood flow and hence oxygen delivery to the vital organs. ...
Drug Therapy During Cardiac Arrest
Following the adoption of exhaled air ventilation and external cardiac compression, it was shown that the combination restored normal arterial oxygenation within 1 minute in dogs asphyxiated toExpand
Use of Vasopressor Drugs in Cardiac Arrest
TLDR
Selective stimulation of various vascular smooth muscle cell surface receptors is accomplished through administration of exogenous agents with the intention of altering blood flow away from nonvital organ beds toward the myocardium and brain. Expand
Medications during resuscitation -- what is the evidence?
TLDR
The medications most commonly used during delivery room resuscitation include epinephrine, sodium bicarbonate, naloxone hydrochloride and volume expanders. Expand
Managing cardiac arrest in infants and children.
When a patient's heart stops suddenly or unexpectedly, the first aims should be to start the heart again and to ventilate the lungs. In many cases this must be done by externally compressing theExpand
Drugs during delivery room resuscitation--what, when and why?
TLDR
This review examines the existing literature for the two commonly used medications in neonatal resuscitation and identifies the many knowledge gaps requiring further research. Expand
Epinephrine in resuscitation: curse or cure?
TLDR
It is the quality of the basic life support, early and uninterrupted chest compressions, early defibrillation and postresuscitation care that will provide the best chance of neurologically intact survival. Expand
Pressor drugs in the treatment of cardiac arrest.
TLDR
This article addresses pressor drugs and adrenergic agonists, including a review of their history, basic science, mechanism of action, and efficacy. Expand

TLDR
Evidence is at hand to show that the effective stimulus is not always the needle prick of the heart wall, as has often been asserted, but that the epinephrine itself is important. Expand
