In our study, even under the same experiment conditions, significant variation of AKI grade was observed among the animals, which may be due to different ROSC time.
The immediate reperfusion period after ROSC is characterized by an abrupt increase in plasma TNF-a concentration.
sup][5] The amplitude spectrum area (AMSA) has been reported to be useful in predicting the likelihood of successful defibrillation [sup][8] and might be an index for predicting the likelihood of ROSC in VF CA animal models.
For in-hospital cardiac arrest, the rate of ROSC is significantly higher when vasopressin is used compared with epinephrine.
The findings from randomized trials and observational studies indicate that epinephrine increases coronary perfusion pressure and the likelihood of ROSC during CPR.
Official public statements about ROSC reflect this changing set of priorities.
4 There are certain studies indicating that high-qualified CPR is related to ROSC positivity.
The initial outcomes of CPR were categorized as no Return of Spontaneous Circulation (ROSC), do not attempt resuscitation (Order in the emergency room), ROSC for more than or equal to 20 minutes or sustained ROSC.
Mechanical ventilation was withdrawn, when spontaneous breathing occurred at [greater than or equal to] 40 breaths per minute for [greater than or equal to] 1min within one hour after ROSC and the blood pressure was stable or increased gradually.
However, the initiation or continuation of lidocaine may be considered immediately after ROSC from VF/pulseless ventricular tachycardia cardiac arrest," the guideline authors wrote.
