OBJECTIVE Although a benefit of vasopressin when compared with epinephrine was shown during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) after a short duration of ventricular fibrillation cardiac arrest, the effect of vasopressin during prolonged cardiac arrest with pulseless electrical activity is currently unknown. DESIGN Prospective, randomized laboratory investigation using an established porcine model with instrumentation for measurement of hemodynamic variables, vital organ blood flow, blood… CONTINUE READING
