- Brain damage is a major contribution to mortality and morbidity after resuscitation from cardiopulmonary arrest. Some data suggest a deleterious role of a dextrose 5% solution given as perfusion solution during resuscitation. Therefore, during resuscitation either dextrese 5% in water, or saline 0,0% will be given in a randomized and double blind fashion in a prospective clinical trial. Survival is the main study end point. Furthermore, neurological sequelae and bioch. parameters will be evaluat
