The Lazarus Syndrome is a very real medical occurrence. It is known in medical terminology as delayed return of spontaneous circulation after cessation of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. It was first reported in the medical literature in 1982. One plausible mechanism for this event is dynamic hyperinflation of the lung causing positive end expiratory pressure. Some other medical investigators have suggested that a return of spontaneous circulation might be due to a delayed action of drugs which were administered during efforts to resuscitate the patient.
