Circulatory arrest due to ventricular fibrillation occurred in two patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage. Their ECO showed the typical abnormalities previously described in patients with central nervous system disease. Prompt recognition of the arrhythmia and initiation of resuscitative measures led to their complete recovery.

    BACKGROUND: Subarachnoid hemorrhage is a fatal disease relatively common in the East Asian population. It can lead to cardiac arrest in several pathologic processes. We attempted to elucidate the characteristics of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest caused by non-traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage....

    Meloxicam is a cyclo-oxygenase-2 (COX-2) preferential non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug with very effective analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects in swine. Previous reports in piglets have demonstrated that meloxicam also inhibits COX-1 and reduces production of thromboxane significantly....

    The article presents a case that illustrates subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) complicating meningoencephalitis where mumps virus was the responsible agent. No causative lesion for the patient's SAH was shown on standard imaging studies. The article indicates that there is strong circumstantial...

    Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a relatively common cause of cardiopulmonary arrest (CPA). Long-term survival with SAH and CPA is rare, and the vast majority of those who survive have moderate to severe neurologic disability. To our knowledge, there are no prior reports of patients with SAH who...
