The survival rate of patients undergoing cardiopulmonary resuscitation is 5 to 15%. New cardiopulmonary resuscitation treatment approaches under investigation include the use of vasopressin as a vasopressor, amiodarone for the treatment of ventricular tachyarrhythmias, and adenosine antagonists (i.e., theophylline) for bradyasystolic rhythms. More innovative approaches include the use of thyroid hormone and endothelin.
