Cardiac Arrest 1 Endotracheal intubation as well as hyperventilation should be performed to maintain a PaCo2 between 25 to 30mm Hg and a Pa O2 of approximately 100mm Hg 2 Cerebral perfusion pressure should be maintained between 80 and 100 mm Hg by maintaining mean arterial pressure and reducing intracranial pressure, if it is elevated. (Cerebral perfusion pressure is the mean arterial pressure minus intracranial pressure) Reduction in intracranial pressure can be produced by hyperventilation and the administration of osmotic and loop diuretics.
