Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A patient in whom moderate hypothermia developed after prolonged cardiopulmonary resuscitation is described. Hypothermia was manifested by transient electrocardiogram changes, including long QT, precordial J waves, and downsloping ST-segment elevation ending in a negative T wave in leads V(1) and V(2) resembling the Brugada syndrome. The physiopathologic mechanisms of these electrocardiographic findings are discussed.
