Breathing: Acute asthma, Anaphylactic reaction to bee sting, Asphyxia due to CO poisoning, Morphine overdose, Pulmonary edema secondary to heart failure, Spontaneous pneumothorax
Cardiac: Asystole, Asystole due to hypothermia, PEA secondary to tension pneumothorax, Pulseless ventricular tachycardia, ST-elevation infarction followed by VF, Ventricular fibrillation
