Cardiac arrest due to digoxin toxicity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


This paper describes the successful outcome from cardiac arrest of a 70 year old woman following digoxin toxicity. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation was continued for 55 minutes, until the return of cardiac output within minutes of digoxin‐specific Fab fragment (Digibind®) therapy. The pharmacology and indications for using digoxin‐specific Fab fragments are discussed. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation should be prolonged in such a situation. 1994 Australasian College for Emergency Medicine and Australasian Society for Emergency Medicine
