Objective To identify the high-risk factors of cardiac arrest during non-cardiac surgery and to provide experience for the effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Method The baseline data,co-morbidities,causes of cardiac arrest,treatment responsees,and survivals of 16 patients undergoing CPR among 127 053 patients receiving non-cardiac surgeries in our center from January 2013 to December 2016 were retrospectively analyzed. Results The main causes of intraoperative CPR included the co-existing cardiovascular diseases,massive intraoperative blood loss/high-risk surgical procedures,and allergy-related factors. Nine patients survived after immediate CPR in the operating room,with a 30-day survival rate of 77.8%. Conclusions Intraoperative cardiac arrest is a rare but potentially catastrophic event during non-cardiac surgeries. The success rate of CPR decreases in elderly patients undergoing high-risk emergency surgeries,especially when massive blood loss occurs during the surgery.
