A 57-year old male uremic patient developed a sudden cardiac arrest due to severe hyperkalemia. The cardiac arrest lasted 135 minutes and was initially unresponsive to conventional therapy. It was successfully treated by prolonged external cardiac massage, assisted ventilation and double simultaneous arteriovenous hemodialysis to rapidly decrease the high potassium level.
