Cardiac arrest is the most serious complication during anesthesia and surgery. Once cardiac arrest is diagnosed, whether the heart is in standstill or in ventricullar fibrillation and whatever is the initial cause, the immediate treatment must be aimed at providing an artificial circulation of oxygenated blood to the vital organs. Authors have experienced cardiac arrest due to ventricular fibrillation during general anesthesia with hypotensive technique. When the diagnosis was established, immediate closed chest cardiac massage was carried out with drug therapy and D.C. defibrillator. Cardiac rhythm was restored immediately after the 100 joules of electric shock was given. The duration of closed chest cardiac massage was 18 minutes. The patient recovered completely without complications.
