After the return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC), OHCA patients present with a 'sepsis-like' syndrome, which is characteristic of the high levels of circulating cytokines and the presence of endotoxin in plasma.[1],[2] In vitro , the cytokine production and proliferation abilities of circulatory lymphocytes of OHCA patients were impaired.[2],[3],[4] This is similar to lymphocytes observed in sepsis.[5] After ROSC, OHCA patients are prone to infection, and infections occur in more than 2 out of 3 OHCA patients after successful resuscitation during hospitalization.[6],[7],[8] Therefore, immune dysregulation is an important feature of OHCA patients after ROSC.
