Cardiac arrest physiology is an emerging field of research that may allow us to better understand why clinical trials of cardiac arrest have been so frustrating

Anti-arrhythmic Drugs and Cardiac Arrest

"There is no evidence that giving any anti-arrhythmic drug routinely during a cardiac arrest increases rate of survival discharge. Despite the lack of long-term outcome data, it is reasonable to continue to use anti-arrhythmic drugs on a routine basis." — ARC

Prognosis After Cardiac Arrest

Prognosis After Cardiac Arrest incolves: the underlying cause of cardiac arrest (e.g. overdose vs dilated cardiomyopathy); presence of co-morbidities (e.g. metastatic cancer, dementia); use of targeted temperature management (therapeutic hypothermia); features of the the cardiac arrest and cardiovascular and neurological assessment
