Department of Surgical Intensive Care, University Hospital RWTH Aachen, Aachen, Germany
Crit Care Med 40:1297-303. 2012..Administering xenon may confer an additional neuroprotective effect after successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation due to its ability to stabilize cellular calcium homeostasis via N-methyl-D-aspartate-receptor antagonism...
