Background: Early and accurate prediction of survival to hospital discharge following resuscitation after cardiac arrest (CA) is a major challenge. Our aim was to investigate the levels of ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) and malondialdehyde (MDA) in CA patients and whether IMA levels are valuable early marker of post-cardiopulmonary resuscitation prognosis in CA patients.
