Hypoxic-Ischemic encephalopathy

The patient was a 35 year old woman who apparently suffered a cardiac event at home.  She arrived at the hospital obtunded with minimal brainstem reflexes.  Two days after admission she developed V-fib and became completely unresponsive.  An MRI at this time showed severe anoxic changes.  She was pronounced dead 12 days after the initial event.
