Consequences of Cardiac Arrest

  • Rapid depletion of oxygen in vital organs.
  • After 4-6 min of cardiac arrest brain damage can occur
  • Resuscitation beyond 10min of arrest is associated with poor outcome
  • Early CPR within 4 min and rapid ALS with defibrillation within 8 min are essential in improving survival and neurological recovery.
