Serum electrolyte levels

Renal function studies

Cardiac and liver enzymes - These values are an adjunct to assess the degree of hypoxic-ischemic injury to the heart and liver

Coagulation system - Includes prothrombin time, partial thromboplastin time, and fibrinogen levels

Arterial blood gas - Blood gas monitoring is used to assess acid-base status and to avoid hyperoxia and hypoxia, as well as hypercapnia and hypocapnia
