Table 1. Physiologic Variables at Baseline and 6 h after Resuscitation
Aortic flush at the start of the arrest was in group I with 25 ml/kg saline at 4°C (n = 6) and in group II with 100 ml/kg saline at 4°C (n = 7). Data are given as median and interquartile range.
* This high 75th-percentile arterial oxygen tension (Pao2) value, above the expected value for a fractional inspired oxygen tension (Fio2) of 0.5, was caused by measuring the value for one dog by error under an Fio2of 1.0. †P < 0.05 comparing group I versus group II.
ROSC = restoration of spontaneous circulation; Paco2= arterial carbon dioxide tension.
