Abstract
Pulseless electrical activity refers to a heterogeneous group of cardiac rhythm disorders, all characterized by pulselessness in the presence of some type of electrical activity other than ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation. We experienced a case of sudden pulseless electrical activity and cardiac arrest during hetastarch infusion in general anesthesia in an adult who had total gastrectomy. We report this experience with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: anaphylactoid reaction; cardiac arrest; pulseless electrical activity
