Hyperkalemia, Hypokalemia, Hypovolemia, Acidosis, hypoxia, Hypothermia, thrombosis-coronary and pulmonary, Cardiac tamponade, toxins and tension pneumothorax are the reversible causes of cardiac arrest. We report a case of successful resuscitation of cardiac arrest due to severe hyperkalemia, hypovolemia and severe metabolic acidosis in a patient of Diabetic Keto Acidosis. Our patient is unique for the fact that he had multiple long standing co morbidities, in prolonged cardiac arrest for about 45 minutes with non-shockable cardiac rhythm with multiple reversible causes such as hyperkalemia, hypovolemia and severe metabolic acidosis and was successfully resuscitated with the complete neurological recovery.
