Abstract A 15-year-old female survived a total of 65 minutes cardiac arrest following ingestion of verapamil and selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors. We consider that the lack of neurological damage, despite evidence of significant renal and myocardial injury, may be related to the possible neuroprotective effect of a large dose of verapamil.
