I think that Patient A has a grave prognosis, but his case is not hopeless. He sustained a witnessed arrest and presumably had effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately. Therefore, he may not have anoxic brain damage. His pulmonary, renal, and hepatic functions are all reversible, individually, and his management until his admission was suboptimal. I believe that this patient ought to get the best that we have to offer. So for Patient A, it is easier to answer the second question first.
