  1. Values are expressed as absolute numbers and percentage and as mean value ± standard deviation or median with 25 to 75% quartiles. Others comprise one intoxication with consecutive apnea, one high-voltage accident, one pulmonary embolism and one unknown reason. BMI, body mass index; BSA, body surface area; CA, cardiac arrest; MCI, myocardial infarction; VF, ventricular fibrillation; VT, ventricular tachycardia; PEA, pulseless electric activity; ROSC, return of spontaneous circulation; CPC, cerebral performance category.
