  1. The total number of ventricular premature beats, bigeminy, ventricular tachycardia (VT)/ventricular fibrillation (VF) ratio was counted over an interval of 30 minutes immediately after return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) and over a 30-minute interval 24 hours later in the propofol (CONTROL) and sevoflurane (SEVO) groups. Data are medians [25th to 75th percentiles]. Neither ventricular tachycardia nor ventricular fibrillation was observed in any group.
