In what circumstances, epinephrine shot causes cardiac arrest??

LikeAnswersShare

Initial high-intravenous-dose epinephrine in cardiac arrest may increase coronary perfusion pressure and improve ROSC, but it may exacerbate postresuscitation myocardial dysfunction.

If the patient has increased heart rate or arrhythmia, epinephrine shot can lead to further deterioration and cardiac arrest can set in.

Thank you doctor
