Resuscitation 78:196-9. 2008..Neither of these models predictably generate pseudo-PEA. The purpose of this study was to create an animal model of pseudo-PEA that will allow for a prolonged time period in this arrest state for future research...
- Compared to angiotensin II, epinephrine is associated with high myocardial blood flow following return of spontaneous circulation after cardiac arrestCharles M Little
