  1. This analysis is a sub-study of an investigation aimed to pursue systemic inflammation in multiple tissues after CA. Serum cytokine profiling was conducted in n = 23 rats. Only n = 3 animals were resuscitated and included in the 6 h group. At least n = 4 animals were included in the 24 h, 72 h and 7 d group. Additionally, n = 2 more sera in the control group and 1 more serum sample in the 24 h group were collected and analyzed from further experiments. In the 72 h group, n = 2 more jejunal samples were also analyzed
