post-cardiac arrest syndrome

post–cardiac arrest syndrome

Neurological impairment, myocardial stunning, internal organ injury, and systemic inflammation resulting from inadequate blood flow to vital organs during cardiac arrest. The syndrome may be attenuated by targeted lowering of body temperature, mechanical ventilation, circulatory support, and keeping blood glucose levels less than 180mg/dL.
