Lazarus Syndrome - Occurs when a patient suffers a cardiac arrest and is declared dead after CPR, only to revive later without assistance. This is possibly due to the raised intrathoracic pressure occuring during CPR reducing blood flow back to the heart. Without CPR, blood rushes back to the heart, leading to cardiac output.
Compression Only CPR should be taught as the Gold Standard to everyone who can't secure an airway.
