Example of duplex sonography of a patient during resuscitation and in severe cardiogenic shock (Pseudo-pulseless electrical activity, ejection fraction severely reduced (10%) after resuscitation. Extracranial internal carotid artery (ICA), external carotid artery (ECA). Flow signals below B-Mode images. b, d End-diastolic flow velocity (ED) marked with an arrow value (cm/s). ICA flow signal is markedly reduced in comparison to normal individuals. Reduced ICA flow velocity indicates insufficient blood flow to the brain
