A passage in the New Testament’s John 11 reads: “When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come out!’
“The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.
“Jesus said to them, ‘Take off the grave clothes and let him go’.”
The Bible, of course, describes a miracle performed by Jesus on someone who had been dead for nearly a week.
Medical experts, however, describe the Lazarus Syndrome as a case of delayed return of spontaneous circulation or ROSC.
Although very few cases worldwide have been described in medical journals, ROSC typically occurs after CPR was attempted on a person who died from cardiac arrest.
In other words, Lazarus Syndrome describes cardiac activity spontaneously returning after a person has been pronounced dead.
