101. Lazarus syndrome (Easter Special)

In 2014, during my internship in the emergency room, we were to resuscitate a 74yr old man who was brought dead in Casualty of the Hospital. We had tried CPR and all possible measures and injected a shot of adrenaline. It all went on for a period of 7 minutes when finally the Casually Medical Officer was on the verge of Death Declaration to the family. Past 7 minutes the nurses noticed changes in ECG monitor, the had patient survived after declaraing death.These are undoubtedly extraordinary stories that sound more suited to a horror movie, but there is a real-world name for such cases: Lazarus syndrome.

The Lazarus phenomenon, or Lazarus syndrome, is defined as a delayed return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) after CPR has ceased. In other words, patients who are pronounced dead after cardiac arrest experience an impromptu return of cardiac activity.The syndrome is named after Lazarus of Bethany, who – according to the New Testament of the Bible – was brought back to life by Jesus Christ 4 days after his death.

Jesus was crucified, seized in a tomb which was sealed and guarded by Roman soldiers. Nothing could stop him, He Defeated death, stones rolled away and He is Risen. That same Power of Resurrection is there for you and me too. No matter what binds us down, No matter what sickness, stress, financial burden or emotional burden that binds you down to grave today, by the Power of Resurrected Christ, you can roll away all the stones thats keeping you back from rising high.

He is Not here for he is risen-Matthew 28:6
