We describe a case where inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) was successfully initiated during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in a younger patient with cardiac arrest related to pulmonary hypertension after disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) postpartum bleeding and hysterectomy. This case illustrates that iNO might be a potential lifesaving tool for resuscitation of patients with cardiac arrest related to pulmonary hypertension, for whom most other resuscitation strategies often are futile.
