Found with no pulse is pretty damned dead. Unless they found him within three minutes, he's brain dead. You can restart a heart that has been down for a lot longer but not a brain unless the body was in ice cold water.

Once you get the heart going, the brain stem might just retain enough function to breath, but that's about it.

Not really. We have reached the point in our technology where we can "revive" bodies of people when we shouldn't. A heart is pretty simple, shown by the fact that you can cold flush one, transport it a thousand miles, and sew it into a different guy and get it working again. You can supply oxygen with a respirator and keep that heart going for decades. But the guy's never coming back.
