  1. Physiologic data for control and iNO-treated animals at baseline and after cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Temperature indicates body temperature estimated using a rectal probe. *P <0.05 vs. control; mean ± standard error of the mean. Data based on 10 animals in each group on BL. PR30 and PR60: control, n = 7; 20 ppm, n = 10; 40 ppm, n = 6. BL baseline, PR time post resuscitation in minutes, HR heart rate, Hgb hemoglobin, CO-Hba carboxyhemoglobin in arterial blood, PaO2 arterial oxygen tension, PaCO2 arterial carbon dioxide tension
