Since a high level of serum potassium changes the resting membrane potential and decreases the ability to reach the action potential, we suspect that the impact of hyperkalemia on the regulation of the heart rhythm would be more obvious during the early postresuscitation period (the first hour after achieving sustained return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC)).
