Anaphylactic Shock/Cardiac Arrest

I have a character who's suffering from anaphylactic shock, and I also need him to have a cardiac arrest.  My questions are:

1.  Is it likely that anaphylactic shock would bring on a huge cardiac arrest, or is this most unusual?
2.  Assuming that he does have the cardiac arrest, what action would the paramedics take when treating him at the scene?

I've looked on Wikipedia, but there isn't much about the actual procedures involved, so I thought I'd turn to you guys for help...
